[T3] attn: virus possibly on list


I got the following message this morning which appears to have come from 
vwtype3 and probably contains a virus. If you got the same message, don't 
execute the file that came with it. If you got the message and are using 
Outlook for email, then you may already be infected and should take steps 
to "clean" your hard drive. I THINK this is the KLEZ (or something like that) 
virus. You can get more information at www.symantec.com.

I don't think it's possible to be certain whose computer sent the original 
message to the list, but if your mail server is something like smtp.abac.com, 
then you should be concerned. Greg is probably already looking into this.

The original message header and text message is quoted below. I have NOT 
included the virus itself. ;-) My apologies if this message is off base as well 
as off topic. Please don't clutter up the list with lots of follow-up mail.
