E-M:/ Some Enviros seem to have a case of BADTRANS VIRUS

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

I'm passing on this message from a MDEQ employee warning
of virus contamination of some EM users and possible messages
you may receive.  In addition it appears that a number of
Michigan enviros are now contaminated and spreading the
W32.BADTRANS virus.  More on this at


I think this virus at two variants,  one a  .b and another .gen

A couple of months ago or so I posted a message on Enviro Mich.  Yesterday =
I received a reply to that post that was a virus attack.  The reply looked =
like just another post on the listserv except that it was addressed to me =
and not the list (which I didn't notice).   The virus was in an attachment,=
  which had already been deleted by the state's firewall and virus =
protection.  The only way I knew something was wrong was because I got =
this virus alert from the state's e-mail system:

Receiver, InterScan has detected virus(es) in the e-mail attachment.
