We *all* have a problem that needs to be solved -- excellent forged headers
that cannot be recognized by the parser *if* the actual injection (which is
always an open proxy) is not yet listed on any of the open proxy lists. Of
course if people kept their patches up to date and their AV dats and could
manage to resist the temptation to open random attachments this problem
would mostly disappear but it seems that the lure of the unexpected
attachment is just too much for a large segment of the computer owning
public :-\ So by knowing which of the hosts in a header string belong to the
reporter then the parser is able to make a more intelligent decision as to
where the injection point occurs.
