    Hello,

    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 :

    aaaa@bbbb.ccc
    dddd@eeee.fff
    gggg@hhhh.kkk
    permit the worm to sentd a message with the addy
    dddd@bbb.ccc for instance

    At second glance, it does not look like a malicious attack ;)

    Rgds,
