Lou,

This is the warning I've been sending to our comrades. Another one
that Marxmail should be warned about as well.

Subject: A new virus (masquerades as a vote for peace)

A new virus is spreading by email that masquerades as a chance to
vote for peace, not war.

Please do not fall for this virus and attempt to vote for peace.

Here's a description of the virus:

"Vote" arrives in an in-box with the subject line "Peace between
America and Islam." The body text of the e-mail reads "Hi. Is it a
war against America or Islam? Let's vote to live in peace." Included
in the e-mail is an attached document called WTC.exe. When the
attachment is double-clicked, the computer is infected.

Here's a link to a report on the virus:
