Not just Australian domains, had a user notify me that email address using
dhs.org were being used in the same way, what was interesting was the use of
the name within the body of the message. Looks like they are hitting anyone
running a mailing list. Haven't looked closely but the attachment seems to
be thee standard virus/trojan payload.
