It's the newest generation of human engineering based viri. theList is 
not hte only mailinglist that has gotten them, some of the W3C 
mailinglists were/are pestered with them as well. 

I just find it sad that this message was let through. A mailinglist like 
this one should be able to keep mails with attachments in quarantine 
until looked at, or maybe just discard them with a note to the sender.
