Further to Julie's warning, I've received two copies of the
"BadTrans-B" worm ("virus") from Birding-Aus members recently
(Anne & Roger Green, and Ed Vella).  In both cases, the emails
contained a suspicious attachment with a ".pif" extension
(e.g. "IMAGES.DOC.pif"), and the "From:" email address had a
leading underscore (e.g. "".)

Details of the BadTrans-B worm (virus) can be found here:
