I guess it is more the normal way, these worms/viruses work:
Checking the address-book and in-box on infected machines, to fake the 
"From: " and "To: " and sometimes "Subject: " part in the messages sent 
to spread itself.
Also the Oberon list is not yet hosted on an Oberon system, it should be 
quite safe on the professionally maintained Unix/Linux server.
Of course an Aos/Bb Server would be better ;-)
