RE: [Full-Disclosure] Infections

I have just spotted an infected email to another list that I am on that
purported to come from me. It hadn't even touched my system. It looks like
it doesn't just pick out emails that you have sent, but emails that you have
received and fakes that From address.
Therefore, those who have been hurling criticism about how people on a
security list could get infected should go back and check the headers.
They'll find that they didn't even originate from the allegedly infected
person's mail server.
Please be more careful before you criticise people on this list.
