one got sent out -- creative.exe -- to the entire listserv.
Anytime one of the listserv recipients that has the listserv in their
address book opens the virus, it respreads to the list, ad infinitum (if
someone keeps opening it).
The virus is called W32.Prolin.Worm, which you can read up on on Norton
It basically screws up .zip's and .jpeg's, but nothing incredibly serious,
just annoying, from what I can tell.
