I have had it sent to me over four times from this list {amsat-bb was in
the header} and a few times from MoonNet.  One of the latest was in French?
 I identified it being from: "ha,ha,ha".  Just now as I got my mail, there
was an no-subject, no-originator attachement "OEHCAFOE.EXE" which I deleted
without opening.  I could not discover the originator.  

Normally when there is an outbreak there are warnings being circulated, but
not this time?  Wonder why?  I hope those who are better at tracing such
are succesful in routing out the culprit {or at least warning innocent
sources and halting the spread of the virus}.
