RE: Virus emails from nanog mail list

I have not seen the NANOG email problem, but have received several tens
of thousans of SPAM messages that claim to be from
'webmaster@apnic.net'.  The originating address in the messages is
66.218.66.70.  As David pointed out, this may or may not be correct.

Subject: Virus emails from nanog mail list



Spam may be off topic but in this case relevant.  Has anyone else 
noticed bounced emails that appear to have origionated from their 
nanog email boxes and contain viruses?

Obviously some bot has gone threw the nanog list and is now forging 
headers such that they appear to come from those addresses, and they 
are attaching viruses.

The IP address (which may or may not be accurate) appears to be 
[195.157.87.253].

Has anyone else noticed this recently?

Dave
