These messages are NOT appearing to come through a reflector. Instead, they
have had a return address which is either YOURS, or that of someone else
who has recently posted to a reflector. And they have ALWAYS had an
attachment which is the worm virus, named any of a coupla dozen names but
all of the same size: 69652 bytes.

I won't discuss the problem further here on MeteorObs but if you want more
information, please e-mail me directly.
