I didn't look at the Received: headers this time, but I'm pretty sure the worm
is again forging the From: address.

By the way, I got some 30 to 50 virus bounce messages from a boneheaded mail
system, apparently for the same sender.  Like one F-secure guy said in a
recent interview, SMTP should be replaced with something more secure (something
with public-key cryptography), but that is not likely to happen until the
spam and worm problem gets yet worse.


PS: I'll be away for the rest of the week.  Season's Greetings to everyone:
