The internet is a very big place. Some of the headers of the messages
I've seen appear to have been scraped from usenet, others could be from
anywhere. <> has more details.

In the last three weeks, I have received one or more copies of this from
the following:

Received: from RohOYDf ( [])
Received: from ipzegvou ([])
Received: from atzjGh ([])
Received: from eliza ( [])
Received: from JWViI ( [])
Received: from YDtFXji ([])
Received: from unknown (HELO WS12) (934309 -at- [62 -dot- 226 -dot- 252 -dot- 149])
Received: from z3n1o2 ( [])
Received: from setjoa ([]) (unresolved, TVCABO Autonomous
System Lisboa)

If you see your own IP address there, your computer is infected with the
gibe worm. And please stop mailing these to me, as the microsoft security
update doesn't help me much on solaris 2.5 regardless of whether it's
legit or not. K TNX LOL BYE.
