Phishing from 'register@pennmush.tinymush.org'

This should go without saying, but in case it doesn't, I recently received a phishing email allegedly from "register@pennmush.tinymush.org" which included some zip file I'm supposed to open to confirm details to them, and a bogus "no virus found" line in the email message.

Obviously, nobody from the Penn devteam is going to be asking anyone to confirm any private information, etc. If I did have any reason to want to communicate with a user about something personal, I'd sign it with my gpg key. If you get something like this, it wasn't from us.
