I set up mail filtering on tug.org 2 weeks ago :-) When I checked
today to see how
many virus infected messages have been blocked since then, I found no
less then 175;
two of these, identical to the message above, were sent to other
lists and blocked.
Three messages sent to latex2html list (with different text but the
same virus -
see below) were blocked as well.
However, I cannot find any evidence that the message above nor the
'charlie' message were
actually sent to the list in their original form. Very strange. Could
the person administrating
mail-scanenr at your site look into this?
