Seems like the Bugbear virus takes the first part of the sender from one
place and the second part from another. I've never even heard of! My guess is that it doesn't do anything to the time
information, hence we can expect your actual sender to be somewhere in
eastern Brazil or Greenland (maybe it doesn't alter the message-id, and
that is somehow involved?), probably someone subscribing
to the ibobjects list receiving individual emails. It could fit with that I
myself received a message with the subject "Re: [IB-BR] Inc Search com
IBO", which probably contained this Bugbear as an attachment (seems like
Norton changes it into a text file with gibberish and I found two like this
this morning and Norton cleansed messages to 13 people at my workplace this

So I am not trying to contaminate you, and doubt I'm involved in any
spreading of this virus,
(I'm sending a copy to, since someone on this
list may be infected without knowing)
