Recently, mark_my_words_again<at>yahoo.com on the Firesign Theatre
mailing list received an email with the w32.Beagle@mm!zip virus
and a spoofed From: address of email@example.com.
The virus couldn't have originated from the firesigntheatre.com
host machine, because it's hosted on a UNIX machine and the
Beagle family of worms infect Windows PCs only (Windows 2000,
Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, or Windows XP).
However, the worm found firstname.lastname@example.org as a From:
address on the infected machine, making it likely that someone
on the Firesign Theatre email list is infected with it, especially
if they have also corresponded with mark_my_words_again<at>yahoo.com
(McMark Time in Seattle).
The worm doesn't appear to deliberately damage anything, it just
tries to spread itself.
For more information on this family of worms, see:
He's coming around, folks! He's gonna be OK
and ready to play symptom six of BEEEEEEEAT THE REAPER!
