FWIW,
I received an email from a Windowz machine spread from a virus a while
back.  The behavior of the virus and the headers of the message suggested
that for every message in the affected user's inbox, the virus would
create a new message with the From: and To: headers transposed, and send
it back to the originator.

So, only people that posted to Nanog would get this from infected
machines.
