Re: [lugod@livepenguin.com: [vox] ello! =))]

A couple of these have indeed come through the list.  They
seem to contain encrypted zip files, so there's no signature
for the virus checkers to recognize.

On the other hand they will require the user to be both dumb
enough and conscious enough to enter the password supplied
with the email to decrypt the payload, so it seems unlikely
we'll see much replication of these.
