Virus warning [Returned mail: Data format error], faked libcurl sender

at least one of the Windows curl user is infected.

I got a mail with the following data:
        Subject: Returned mail: Data format error"

It contains a file "" which contains
        "message.htm .com"
which is identified as
        PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, for MS Windows, UPX compressed

Very funny. BTW: It's detected as spam by SpamAssassin.

So don't open it.
