ScanMail has detected a virus during a real-time scan of the email traffic.

Subject:  A very  nice game
Virus:      WORM_KLEZ.H
File:        picacu.exe
From:     debian-security <debian-security@lists.debian.org>
To:          cariravenna@carira.it;
Action:   Uncleanable, Deleted;

Scanned by ScanMail for Lotus Notes 2.5
with scanengine 6.150-1001
and patternfile lpt$vpn.339

Similar to the other KLEZ variants, this worm can change or spoof the original email address in the FROM: field. It obtains the email addresses that it places
in the FROM: field from the infected user's address book.
This causes a non-infected user to appear as the person who has sent this
worm's malicious email. It does this to hide the real sender of the infected email.
The actual email address of the sender is found in the Envelope From field.

So it doesn't come from debian-security, sorry.
