Two reminders: first, the listproc on the Berkeley SunSite strips MIME 
attachments, so anything that appears to be a virus did not come through 
the list.  Second, e-mail viruses are very adept at forging mail headers to 
make it appear that a message came from someone you know, or at least to 
disguise where it really did come from.  Whenever you receive a suspicious 
message, you should check the complete mail headers.  If someone's From 
address is something at ohiolink.edu but the Received headers only show a 
route through scriptkiddies.com or something similar, it may be fair to 
assume the message was forged.  And of course, anything received from 
Web4Lib should have sunsite.berkeley.edu in the Received headers.
