Forged headers and a body designed to con unwary users into running the
attachment on their Windows PC in order to infect it.

The Fedora infrastructure administrators tend not to send mail from
"archive@mail-archive.com".

With the full headers you might be able to figure out more about where it came
from but I didn't receive a copy at all so I'm doubtful it even passed through
the lists infrastructure (you can put more-or-less anything you like in the
Reply-to and to fields of an email).

Regards,
Bryn.

My mail provider caught it and didn't even forward it to me. They sent
just me a warning:

Datei: message.zip
Virus: W32.Mydoom.M
