A virus mail has just been sent twice to me personally (and also to at 
least one other person from the developer team) and once to the 
fpc-pascal list address (but it was blocked there, so it won't appear 
on the list itself fortunately) with the following text in it:

Date: Wed, 9 Oct 2002 16:55:59 +0200
From: fpc-pascal-admin at du.tel.hr
To: undisclosed-recipients:  ;
Subject: Welcome To "fpc-pascal"!

Welcome to the fpc-pascal at lists.freepascal.org mailing list! List
etiquette for fpc-* lists @lists.freepascal.org

Any suggestions, additions should be sent to the list administrator,
daniel.mantione at freepascal.or

     [ Part 2, Audio/X-MIDI  69KB. ]
     [ Cannot play this part. Press "V" then "S" to save in a file. ]

We did not send this virus. We also don't know whether this is a new 
"smart virus" (bugbear?) or someone with bad intentions. The from 
address was identical in all cases (fpc-pascal-admin at du.tel.hr ), so 
you can filter on that if you want. Please delete this mail 
immediately, thanks.

fpc lists admin.
