I ran across the URL:  <-- which goes to GFI and tests mail
secrity It send some emails (I think about 20?) to the email address
specified in the page (in that URL) all of which contain exploits to run
on your machine. None of which are malicious, however run a proof of
concept program to show you that your machine is explotiable. They
generally popup notepad and save to your desktop, a file which contains
directory listing of your C drive, and file listing, and some other misc
information. Lots of other test as well, such as class ID extention test
and such.

I thought some of you network peeps/admins would be intersted in this.
