According to the dozen or so bounces from anti-virus mail gateways, it's
one of the later variants of Klez, not Bugbear, but that's
irrelevant, what matters is that it's a virus and it's being sent to a
mailinglist which is not about virii.

Adam: If gabo.pl can't get rid of a single virus on their systems (or
several, how would I know how many they actually have), I'd suggest you
get a new mail provider.
