You must be the only guy who's never had a virus get by before your A/V
vendor ships a signature update. Now go back, check *that* posting's date,
and what it was infected with, and if it was something that most of the
major vendors had been catching for a reasonable amount of time, *then*
you can point fingers.

I never allowed .pif attachments :-)

If someone wants to share a file, email is not the best way to do it.
