    With the help of Google I found this explanation
    http://www.cert.org/tech_tips/email_spoofing.html
    Please note that the warning indicated COULD BE. I only can recommend a
    virus protection which is updated online on a DAILY basis. There are several
    providers for virus protections; personally I am using the following one
    which, at a time, showed to have the shortest response between the
    appearance of a mal ware and the distribution of the corresponding
    protection.

    P.S. Sorry, this has now nothing any more to do with Bris Sextant
