No, happily. This is characteristic of this particular virus's design. It
takes part of a real message received by the infected machine, modifies the
sender's address to substitute a different ISP, and attaches itself. If
you look closely, you'll see the following:
The return address given is firstname.lastname@example.org. My ISP is adelphia.net and
I use contesting.com for all my reflector posts.
The truncated body of the message is part of one I posted on towertalk
about 4-5 weeks ago.
The full header shows this is coming from someone in Finland -- If one of
the towertalkians in OH recognizes:
"Received: from ux1 (CDL.kdyn.saunalahti.fi [188.8.131.52])
by gw01.mail.saunalahti.fi (Postfix) with SMTP
id 4412D9CA09; Mon, 23 Jun 2003 02:41:33 +0300 (EEST)"
as belonging to a particular friend or colleague, perhaps you can tell him
or her. I suspect this is probably a dynamically-assigned IP address, but
don't know this ISP.
