I'd guess this is part of an earnest, recently-launched campaign that I
think might be even more generic. I have of late received many (all
deMIMEd) emails with similar content from several people who I know for a
fact are not on cctalk. It may well be, however, that one of us accidently
was infected by its payload, and that payload is now emailing everyone in
that person's address book. I know a lot of people who use Outlook's "Put
everyone I reply to in my Address Book" feature, which would then easily
result in this effect, particularly for someone who has been on the list for
a while and carried on a few off-list conversations.

In any case, it seems to be going around. The most recent I received, just
this morning, came under the guise of being a virus
scanner/remover/innoculator for Klez that should be run immediately, "before
infecting [sic] can occur." Riiiiight...
