From Mike at Spywareinfo......
It's a well known fact that Bugbear and other worm may send a mail from an infected machine using an addy from its contacts AND with a message token from its messages or another file from the infected machine, adding or not the virus.
Furthermore it's no P. Kolas' addy but a false addy made
from 2 or different addies like a lot of worms proceed :
permit the worm to sentd a message with the addy
firstname.lastname@example.org for instance
At second glance, it does not look like a malicious attack
