Replying to LO28373 --

There are more and more troubling viruses.

A couple of people tell me they have received virus-laden messages which
appear to have come from the LO list... In fact, they come from some
infected computer and pretend to be from the LO list.

I recently wrote in part:

>address, numerous cases have been reported in which users of uninfected

> - Do not open messages that look suspicious
