I got an email yesterday with a subject "I love you".  The body was "kind of simple, but fun nonetheless."

I figured just another virus to delete but as I am a curious person I looked at the attachment and found a interesting name "glibc-2.1.3-stubs.tar.gz.src"  I have not opened it yet and I am not afraid to as if I am not root it can't hurt me but I am wondering if any of you have any knowledge of what this might be.

Thanks,
