FYI, I received an e-mail from the U of Texas at Arlington (see e-mail
header portion in the first post below) that gave me instructions on a
patch.  I haven't tried it, but given the approach, I can only assume
it's some sort of malware.  It's a rather lame attempt too.

At first I thought it just was someone in a LUG messing with me.  I
didn't want to turn this stuff over to Red Hat if it was just an
individual having fun with only me.  But it appears that people on the
OpenBSD list have been getting them too.

I'm sure the trademark in the domain name makes this easy if all other
attempts to shut the site down fail.

Posts to LEAPLIST/NTLUG I made with more details (including the e-mail
