It could have been from NAFEX itself but would absolutely not be a
system message from the list; once subscribed, always subscribed until
you leave the list. I would be very wary of suspicious messages these
days and do not click on any link contain in them unless you are 100%
sure that is it from a recognized and trusted source; of course hacked
accounts using people's email addressbooks to propagate viruses into
lists and to individuals is common these days. The virus containing
lists in hacked email is usually pretty easy to spot. I highly recommend
using GMail and Thunderbird for email. If, GMail, then nothing is on
your home computer.
