This morning I received what appeared to be an automatic notification that I
had sent a virus (Klez) to somebody. I just want to reassure people that I
have interactive anti-virus software that scans everything all the time.
That was updated only yetsreday, and today I have done an additional scan
and found nothing. I know this is an ongoing problem, but not me folks!

I've been getting such notifications for a few weeks, usually in the 
form of allegedly bounced messages from me (actually spurious)which 
supposedly could not be delivered because they contained a virus. 
Since I use a Mac, which AFAIK cannot be infected with Klez, I just 
delete the messages. I know enough not to open the attachments 
(although I doubt that my Mac would be able to do so if I were 
foolish enough to try). The notifications always have addresses of 
LUGers, so I presume some dimwitted hacker (probably a N***n or C***n 
user) is playing a 'joke' on many of us, subject to the limitations 
of his rather feeble imagination.
