We've seen a lot of cheesy fake messages produced by viruses trying to entice users to click on their attached executables, but this one has to be producing the most heartburn for domain and website owners. The worm Symantec calls W32.Beagle.J@mm uses a series of random message lines and a variable to produce a fake message apparently from an official source. Check out the message the guys over at Shacknews received.
Update: I just received our own custom version of the message:
