You likely won't see an attachment in a real e-mail message from
evolt.org lists.  Dan has MG stripping them out for most lists.
However, from what I know, the virus messages only appear to be coming
from thelist or members of thelist.

I haven't seen them myself either but some of the admin members have
reported getting them perhaps as a result of harvesting e-mail
addresses from the old archives.
