Dear sympa users

We suspect that Sobig virus was able to add and/or remove users into some lists because Sobig send a message to any email adress found in user mailbox including sympa@host?subject=subscribe%20list.

For this reason we have change Sympa antivirus plugging in order to parse all messages sent to list but also messages sent to sympa itself and messages to be foprwarded to list-request or list-editor.

You can apply this patch using the following CVS diff :
