   RE: [xml-dev] E-mail account security warning.

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I got this, too, and replied to the admin@xml.org address that I 
thought it was a virus or work spoofing the address culled from 
someone of us whose machine(s) is/are infected. It is usually my 
policy to notify the address spoofed. Unfortunately is almost 
impossible at this point to close out these infections unless the 
machines of all list members are disinfected. As someone on a lot of 
lists, I am now inundated daily with this abominable horse puckey.
