no list is secure, especially in the presence of broken mailers. If you believe otherwise then you don't read mailer-daemon mail. Postel has called for a Virus RFC. I think that's a fine idea. I would like to see a copy of the virus myself, since there are a lot of infectable machines on this campus that weren't hit for one reason or another, and more machines coming on line every day. If we want a secure meeting, I would argue that the only way to do it is in person. Perhaps the internet engineering task force is the appropriate body to figure out a meeting time and place and invite people to come. I am concerned that the next attack will hit the usenet news network - there are a lot of machines running NNTP in the world. Are there any known NNTP security holes, and how can I stop them up? --Ed
