    This merely means that somebody has a virus who had both Michael and Roozbeh
    in his/her address book.

    People who believe that e-mails with a particular name in the From field
    must come from that very person can be called, ehem, naiive.

    This particular virus sends itself around, identifying the sender as one of
    various addresses from the infected person's address book. In addition, the
    virus swaps the usernames and domains around, so addresses such as are created.

    So, basically, it means that the virus probably comes from a person who:
    1. Is in Singapore.
    2. Has following entries in the address book: everson@...,,
    roozbeh@... and
    3. Uses Microsoft Windows.

    Anybody ring a bell?
