Forwarding this for Mark, he deserved some credit for verifying the IP but did not want his other addy harvested.

It's like you need a wing man now for posting to mail lists!

 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?
Earlier today I received 2 bounce messages from AOL stating they were
not delivered due to a virus and originated from that very IP!  So
you're not alone and/or imagining things.... thanks for mentioning its
harvesting source.
