Re: Linux infected ?

Am I the only one thinking; "Wine can actually manage to get infected by 
malware now? Cool." Props to those guys for their hard work implementing the 
Win32 API so completely. Last time I tried testing that (in a quarantined 
sandbox) it was an insta-crash. That was a few years ago, admittedly.

Mind you, it because of users like this that I run ClamAV on all incoming 
email. Haven't had to berate anyone for trying open something 
like "britney.zip" or in this case something that ends in .com because it 
sounds like it's probably a website for years. Props to the ClamAV guys too.
