It's the latest Windows virus.  If you take a look, you'll see that one
person sent out a couple dozen messages just before all the virus warnings
came flooding in; it seems safe to assume that he's the one who's infected.

There appear to be two separate mail servers responding to the threat with
warnings, but sending them to the list rather than the originator.  Whether
this indicates that they're broken (sending "_you_ are infected" messages to
the list instead of to the sender of the infected message) or not (they're
warning everyone else on the list about the threat) is a matter of personal
opinion.
