For unusual reasons I was looking at my EMail on a Windows PC and it's
Anti-Virus (AVG Free) detected a Win32:Malware-gen infection in the file
Inquiry.exe inside Inquiry.gz inside the third message of this digest
(Issue: 10744) - given that that was a spam message anyhow, is such
*malicious* junk common in this mailing list?  Is it was just that I
happened to be using a vulnerable platform (i.e. Windows) whereas I
normally lurk from a *nix one that means I'm encountering something that
Windows/Cygwin users see frequently here?
