Yeah its just the Win32/Shimg worm, I'm getting them off about four mailing 
lists I'm on, it's not just the myth list. Got about 300 viruses and about 20 
bounced rejections from dumb ass mailservers that have been setup by people 
too stupid to realise not to bounce to "From:" addresses.

Ho hum. Expect it'll all peter out over the next few days.
