Hello Listers; there is a particularly virulent computer virus (SoBig) 
making the rounds and causing chaos.

The new coral-list setup seems to be shielding the list subscribers 
pretty well (we've caught 232 virused messages directed at the coral-list).

However, we have received automated complaints that the virus has been 
sent from admin at coral.aoml.noaa.gov; this is a spoofed address, meaning 
the virus has faked the sending address.  There's really nothing we can 
do to stop this behaviour, but be assured that the virus is not coming 
from the coral-list server.

For more information on this virus please check this website.


Make sure your virus scanners are updated!!!
