How can this be? I haven't got any sobig infected mails from this list,
is the freelists.org server stopping them, and then it sends a notice only
to you personally?
AFAIK all sobig variants contains an attached file, that the user needs to
run to get the infection, and in fact I don't see any attachments at all in
any mails posted to this list in at least one year(?).

The W32.Sobig.F@mm variant is also spoofing the "from" header in the sent
mails -is it possible that someone got mail(s) that seems to come from this
list, but in reality they dont?

(Just curious.)
