Dear R-devel subscribers,

I'm feeling quite sheepish at the moment:
When I had activated the change from majordomo to mailman this
morning, I accidentally didn't activate the spam(+some virus)
detection part.  I've only activated it half an hour ago.

Indeed there were twos message of the following kind sent from
R-devel -- I did never seem them personally, because we *do*
filtering of these.
It seems they are Javascript-based viruses (see some info below).
In any case, I apologize and very much hope that this won't
happen (as easily) again.
