Once again there is a batch of viruses in distribution via email
 are forging the 'from' address.
 Please keep in mind that, if you get a virus from someone, it's
 not being sent from them at all ... but someone else with both
 apparent sender and you have corresponded with.
 Unfortunately, this means that it's possible for a virus to be
sent to a 
 mailing list. is running active virus protection (two different
virus scanners, 
 f-prot & clamav) which seems to be catching everything that has
 thrown at it.
 Rest assured, however, that even if the virus were to get past
the virus 
 scanner ... the virus payload would be removed from the email
before it 
 gets distributed so only the text portion of the message could
 get distributed.
 As always, please make sure you are running virus protection on
 systems and that your virus definitions are up to date.  A
 backup doesn't hurt either :)
