    Re: Warning: Virus Attacks "From" Webkahuna

    Jared,
    
    I think this is a well known virus going around recently that cleverly makes
    its messages look like they are coming from a server.  I got a bogus one
    like this claiming to come from my ISP's server.  It's nonsense and can be
    ignored (except for the payload, of course).  There is a good chance that no
    list member is actually infected.
