Quick question, why do I always receive emails like this?  It seems that
if the virus has been intercepted, there is no need for me to know about
it... is this advertising for their antivirus scanner, or something
designed to make virus authors all proud when they do a search and their
virus comes up in mailing list archives and they can see how far their
work spread?
