I received a virus (MyDoom.O) sent *only* to an email address used by CJ and its merchants. Specificially, the email originated from 126.96.36.199, registered to:
OrgName: Silicon Beach Communications
Address: 501 Bath Street
City: Santa Barbara
The body of the email read:
Dear user **munged**, Mail server administrator of **munged** would like to let you know that,

This is clealy a virus, and one that's either infected CJ or a merchant. I can't identify the IP address other than the information above. So, be very careful opening mail.. it might not be what you expect!

I've received a bunch of these today, and many of the from and to addresses are dictionary attacks, meaning that they randomly chose addresses. It's not necessarily a merchant (or CJ) that is infected.

I can confirm this - I have received (as has most of the Internet) a bunch of these today too.Todd Crawford

It's not a dictionary attack, and the address hasn't been harvested from anywhere other than CJ. I'm not saying it *is* CJ, it might be a merchant.
We got hit with these in my real-life work too. It happens.. viruses spread so quickly now and anti-virus software takes a while to catch up. Even in the sort of Fortune 500 company I work for IRL these things can sneak through.
