The attachment is in BINARY format, and it uses
Windows' Shell Scrap Object file. Windows hides
the extemsion, so it APPEARS to be a text file on Windows.
Instead it is not, it's a binary containing VBScript.
If you open it in Windows, you are infected.

Check out McAfee or any antivirus website for more info

Uhmm... Maybe I missed something, but that was just a text file with a
couple jokes in it.  I didn't see any VBScript or anything else that
could possibly be a virus.

Did the list software filter something out or has the virus panic
attack finally taken hold?
