Funnily enough, having been involved in system security for a number of
years, I knew this.

It was a joke. Obviously though, not a funny one.

It is NOT Craig!

Todays (and yesterdays) viruses forge the sender's email address. They 
usually pick one from the address book.

So, the only thing we can conclude is that someone subscribed to this 
list and having Craig's e-mail in his/her address book is infected.

The only way to tell for sure is to track down the IP and from that to 
track down the infected machine. ISP dial-in accounts can and does 
complicate matters.

Nix.
