Thanks for the warning.

Everyone: Please keep in mind that the recent crop of viruses spoof the 
sender's email address. Our list software has powerful virus scanners. 
We do not allow attachments of *any* kind to go through the list 
software -- for this very reason. I can confidently say that b-hebrew 
has sent out *no* virus. If you receive any message with an attachment 
that says it is from our list, that message has been faked.

The moderators have been kept *very* busy daily dealing with dozens of
"non-member posts" and bounces from email servers all over the world
complaining we have sent them a virus, when in fact our list did not. 
And many, many, many incoming "posts" have arrived with a virus 
attached. All of them have been caught and discarded.

"Blessed are the paranoid, for they never open unknown attachments!" :-)
