SoBig.F virus authors are responsible for the annoying spam, not Sun Micro or Netscape

These e-mails are courtesy of the SoBig.F virus.  This
e-mail worm includes logic that spoofs the sender's
e-mail address from harvested files of infected
machines.  This means that a computer somewhere with
files that contain *@sun.com and *@.netscape.com
e-mail addresses has been infected by the SoBig.F
virus.   

You and W3C should configure your e-mail servers
and/or workstation e-mail applications to block
e-mails with attachments ending with *.src and *.pif. 
Both of these are associated with SoBig.f.
