Subject: RE: FIRST TIME TRY AT SPOOFING A MAIL LIST (For Me) BAD TRANS VIRUS

This virus uses mail from someone's inbox to send itself out. It uses the
subject line and parts of the message and so it will look like a reply to
the list. Nasty worm/virus...
Just another soggy Seattle Sysop.

This is the first ,for me, receiving a Virus that tried to spoof a mailing
list. Anyone else experienced this? Zone Alarm and Norton AV caught it.
Zone Alarm changes the attached file's extension to "zlo".
I think many,Newbie or "unaware" list members would have opened the
attachment.. This message (mine) quoted *was a message* that I had sent to
SOUTHERN-CHAT-L. Note the "Date-warning" header message.
