There are a zillion of these going around now. I believe it's the
"Bagle-J" virus or something like that. Either this one does a better job
than previous ones of targeting mailing lists (by sending as a
subscriber), or it just sends out a lot of messages and happens to hit
lists. Anyway if you look at the message headers this one came from a
dialup pool in New York, whereas I happen to be in Korea still. So, just
another day on the Internet ...
