Me too, including e-mail from me to me.

I doubt this is a worm. More like identify theft. Spammers
using legit addresses they steal as the sender's address.

The yet-again-TiVo-hype article today, about people not
needing to "rush home" to watch the last Seinfeld episode
(as if any half-way competent person has had rush home
for any TV show in the past quarter century) reminded me
that this sort of spam intrusion is going to become
commonplace with TiVo-like devices. The more storage,
addressable, and "smart" the box, the easier it is to
target it with spam.
