Yes.. and the Klez worms causing these warnings, too.

No.. They seemed to have come at least from two separate addresses.

The messages were not from list subscribers. Previously, messages from non-subscribers were accepted, but this has now changed. From now on, only messages from subscribers will be accepted to the list. Messages from non-subscribers will be sent to me for approval before they can be delivered to the list (and I will not promise to approve these very quickly, so using subscribed addresses is highly recommended). This will hopefully prevent further virus/worm messages (and spam for that matter) from getting to the list.
