RE: Attempts to compromiseTOR servers running windows?

My ISP's mail server is getting bombarded with the same garbage.  All the
messages I am getting are from "defang@localhost", and try to appear (very
poorly) from official email addresses like fbi@xxxxxxx or
webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx and so on.  They all contain a .zip with an executable
and yes, you guessed it, the sober worm.  I am wondering if some idiot is
doing this intentionally or if a machine has become compromised.  The
messages I receive are not even addressed to me.  I am getting around 3 a
minute, and had thousands yesterday.  Outlook's junk filters are handling it
quite well I must say.

Subject: Attempts to compromiseTOR servers running windows?

 When I set up tor I gave this yahoo address as a contact address. Just
before the thanksgiving holiday I noticed a lot of spam with a zipped file
containing the sober worm as an attachment. I have since received about
three thousand messages and Ive begun to notice a pattern. It seems that
these are addresses that come from tor contact addresses. I have also
received error messages (from Yahoo?) that indicate that mail that I never
sent from my yahoo account could not be sent. Any ideas?
