Klez Virus

Are you sure the html, jpeg, and png files are really infected?

In my experience, one of the Klez variants attaches a copy of itself
_and_ a random file from the infected computer's hard drive. This
random file is unaltered (i.e. "clean"). I've seen several infected
emails where MailScanner with Sophos removes the virus, but passes on
the extra attached file (with bad mime boundaries, but who cares).
