Re: Spam alert

I have also just subscribed and I am wondering about these emails. I am subscribed to a number of lists so I don't know which one these come from. Are the Debian lists particularly prone to this sort of stuff, or have we just been unlucky?

Hi. I started receiving a whole lot of spam last night, shortly after subscribing and posting to this newsgroup for the first time. I'm not sure which brand of net-annoyant it is, but I'm receiving a lot of messages with big .exe files attached (funny that I can't open these in my macintosh household)

A lot of these say things like "New critical update" from "Microsoft" (obviously neither is true) http://www.microsoft.com/security/antivirus/authenticate_mail.asp for info

I'm hoping one of you can take corrective action to kill this virus, because my mailbox filled to capacity today and started bouncing messages back to people >:(
