Nope, that's the way MHonArc names attachments with unknown (to it) MIME
type... If you feel suspicious, just get a copy of the message resent to
you (send an empty email to <cygwin-xfree-get.18927<at>cygwin<dot>com>),
and verify that the attachment is an icon (it is).
FWIW, the SPAM filtering on these lists is great and catches most worms.
Also, worms don't usually send 500-byte attachments. ;-)
