I just think its a bit strange that both viruses that i have gotten have
been from the pd list
I am not sure if it's that i simple read or open all the mail from the list
or what but my school account has caught all recent
viruses. The wierd thing is that i got a recent trojan on my windows box
from Downloading Python 22.

Eudora and Netscape/Mozilla mail are still vulnerable to viruses, but
much much less so than Outlook. Yes, even linux is vulnerable to
viruses, but they are exceedingly rare (they do exist though).
