Fwd: Re: Virus emails from nanog mail list
Forwarding this for Mark, he deserved some credit for verifying the IP but did not want his other addy harvested.
It's like you need a wing man now for posting to mail lists!

Has anyone else noticed bounced emails that appear to have origionated from their nanog email boxes and contain viruses? Obviously some bot has gone threw the nanog list and is now forging headers such that they appear to come from those addresses, and they are attaching viruses. The IP address (which may or may not be accurate) appears to be [22.214.171.124]. Has anyone else noticed this recently?Earlier today I received 2 bounce messages from AOL stating they were not delivered due to a virus and originated from that very IP! So you're not alone and/or imagining things.... thanks for mentioning its harvesting source. mS (firstname.lastname@example.org)
