Considering how many sites (such as CMU and Eddie) that have had infections
and know about our two Ultrix machines, I'm surprised that cogito.mit.edu
and psyche.mit.edu haven't yet been affected.  I've seen a couple of
suspicious processes (such as a sendmail with 364.5 seconds of CPU time!)
over the last couple of days but no signs of infection.  I've only
recently started maintaining these machines, and they're still running
Ultrix 1.2 (ack! pththt!), which may explain this.  My sendmails were
without the debug option already.

BTW, Spaf, could you put me on your lists (newsgurus, phage, etc) in
specific, as "strata@eddie.mit.edu"?  The listing of "postmaster@eddie"
should stay on for Jeff Siegal and others who read it until they put
themselves on specifically.  Given the kinds of info going around here,
I agree with the suggestions that aliases such as "postmaster" be
phased out...
