DO NOT OPEN A MAIL SENT FROM big at boss.com!!! It contains a Windows
PIF-file that is infected with a virus!

OK, the unthinkable happened, and some &%&% posted a virus to this list.
I just turned the members-only bit on, and that should do for this
attack, but naturally is is not good enough solution. We are
investigating more long term methods (virus scanner, attachment
screening etc.) as I write this.

I am very sorry that this happened, and all I can say that we (= OSDL) 
are going to everything that is possible to make sure it does not
happen again.
