Yes, several.  And a couple apparently from other developers, other
non-developers, from debian-devel@lists.debian.org (yes, From:, I kid you
not, silly virus!) and now from myself using both of my active email

So much for Microsoft's security initiative.  Most of them have been the
klez virus or a couple of variants, some with almost convincing messages
attached to them about security patches for IE and the like.  Point,
laugh, have a good time, and be glad you're not using win32.  =)
