Even if they wre real, they would be "real-life" MS Windows viruses in emails in a debian package. For someone to get "infected" they would have to run MS Windows, download a debian package, unpack it, open a file named "virusN" in an email viewer and run the attached file. However, as far as I know they're not actual viruses, they're just made to look like them (i.e. they contain the signatures, but not the harmful code). Therefore they're harmless. -- Marius Gavrilescu (science-kids) In some rocks you can find the fossil footprints of fishes.
