RE: Viruses in the cygwin mail lists

I haven't received a single virus so far. I assume that this is either a
moderated list -but it's too quick for that- or a virus and spam scanner
runs through the contributions before releasing it.

It did never occur to me:

I had alone about 50 scans, around 20 crude IIS oriented attacks, 8 codered
and 4 apache attacks over the last 2 weeks. No idea about sp*m and viruses
sent to me since it's filtered externally. But this list is probably a
target from many sides.

This list is relatively free of spam AND totally free of viruses.

Excellent work! I will NOT ask what's running [here] behind the scenes.
Don't need to know.


So, no idea what zamo is talking about. Maybe the return address might give
us a hint: Aaaahhhh: *****@HOTMAIL.COM !!!

Case closed.
