[BKARTS] VIRUS ALERT



Not to be alarmist, but the W32.Sobig.F@mm virus is making the rounds in a
big way today. I've gotten 124 alerts (i.e. infected messages) today as of
now, many of them with the addresses of subscribers (which does not mean
that your machine is infected). Why do I mention this? Well, W32.Sobig.F@mm
is a mass-mailing, network-aware worm that sends itself to all the email
addresses that it finds in the files with the following extensions: .dbx ,
.eml , .hlp, .htm, .html, .wab, .txt

The important part here is the .html... All messages sent to the list are
archived as .html with the senders email intact. This is especially
important for all those who have posted to the list. Please have up-to-date
antivirus software installed. More info can be found at
