The following message was bounced from the list due to unrecognized sender address. Even if the virus didn't make it to the list, I think that users of Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express should be careful. In the past few days, I have received several apparent virus attachments from Outlook users. One virus is about 4 kilobytes long (written in 80386 machine code) and rather harmless: when the message is opened in Outlook, it'll send itself to all addresses listed in the address book. (You don't even have to open the attachment.) In my opinion, this is another excellent example of how usability and security are opposite goals. Does anyone really need to have a scripting language in a mail user agent program?
