Dear GAP Forum,

Two messages were sent out to the forum today, apparently from

 e.obrien at auckland.ac.nz and  vvk at csu.ru

These were in fact sent by a virus-infected computer apperantly in Russia (as
you can see by a close examination of the headers). 
Any non-text attachments on forum messages are removed by mailman
automatically, so these messages did not carry viruses.

We will work on improving our defences against such mails. In the mean time,
please just ignore them.
