I think that's how the MyDoom virus normally turns up, although the
copies I've received normally have a more meaningful subject and text to
trick idiots into launching the attached executable "text file".

First time I've seen an attempted virus post to the list if that's what
it was though...

I didn't think the list would let anything through with an attachment
though. I guess the message headers are a little screwy though;
Evolution's inbox pane thinks there's an attachment, but the message
view pane doesn't...
