There's nothing - it's the same ol Sircam virus, using email addresses
found in web page caches, etc.

You wouldn't believe how many are being caught on their way to apache.org
addresses; my spamfilter also catches messages bearing this virus.
Thousands per day.  Hundreds alone to people like myself, Roy, Ralf, and
many jakarta mailing lists.

Many of the messages do not have attachments, though, oddly enough, and
those aren't caught.  I don't see a reliable pattern to match them on; I
don't want to block all messages that say "Approved" for example.  :)
