faked zip files

Hi all,

completely off topic:

The recently sent "password-protected" zip files were generated by a virus on PCs of subscribed members out there. Not recommended to be opened under Windows:

merkur $ zipinfo Readme.zip
Archive: Readme.zip 46503 bytes 1 file
-rwxa-- 2.0 fat 44543 T- defN 17-Mar-04 14:02 alarho.exe
1 file, 44543 bytes uncompressed, 46373 bytes compressed: -4.1%

So zip files are now declared illegal too on the mail transport level. Folks wishing to sent (small) examples via the list are advised to use UNIX tar files, or, much better, put them on a web server somewhere and sent the link.
