Sorry for quoting the entire discussion, but the one thing not
mentioned here (and I haven't investigated enough of these to tell) is
that this mailing may be the result of a broken trojan/virus. I've

days... suggesting that the virus is spreading slowly (as reported by
eweek on a new one that appeared about two weeks ago)...
