To all interested Darwin/HMS Beagle fans

Darwin-related trojan email warning. Beagle blogger Richard has just sent this through:

A word of warning. Early this morning I received an email saying the following

hello. I'd like to offer my Darwin Souvenir pillows or photo on the site.. can you tell me where the place would be to best show this art to a needing public?

thank you,
arribella pellicano

It contained a frankly bizarre attachment "origin of the species.bmp" showing a pillow with an image on it of a woman's naked torso and what appears to be a child wearing a chimp mask. Who is this joker? I thought."

So anyone who's blogging or has Darwin content on their website, watch out for this one.

Richard adds: I did some more research and ended up at a site which attempted a trojan attack on me: http://www.l-a-m-b-s-t-a-r.com (I have inserted dashes for safety purposes).
