I've just received an email with the subject "Japanese girl VS playboy"
that claims to be from Birding-Aus.  It contains an attachment that is
infected with the Klez worm.  The email headers indicate that while the
"From" address looks like it was from Birding-Aus, it definitely did not
get sent by the Birding-Aus mailing list; it appears to have been sent
from the USA.

I'm not sure if this was sent accidentally by a member of the list who
is infected by the worm to people in their address book, or if it was 
a deliberate  attempt to "spoof" a genuine Birding-Aus email to try and
get people to open it without checking.

If you receive any email claiming to be from Birding-Aus that contains
an attachment, it _may_ contain the Klez worm.
