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.
