Re: debianppc list and sven virus
As has been mentioned before, it is not necessarily, and probably is
not, a list user. AAUI, Swen looks for publicly available web list
archives and grabs email addresses from them. A Swen expert could
conjecture on why it picks on powerpc and not other Debian lists.
I bothered my ISP until they installed an ISP-level filter, which
gets all but 1 or 2 a day now. Your ISP should be interested too,
it eats up a tremendous amount of bandwidth and disk space.
