This is not right, because 'swen' is not a mail/news-server Virus. 
It is a user space Virus.

But some people creating local mailarchives under Windows, which is 
spiderd by 'swen'. After that, 'swen' use its own smtp machine to 
send the BULLSHIT out.

So if you habe a Debian Archive like me with more then 3.2 Million 
Messages in Maildirs, 'swen' will be very happy if you run Windows.
