i don't understand how just opening mail can download a virus to my computer.
i do understand clicking the link in the initial email has caused some of you
to be hacked. as i have been in the past.
maybe those of you more savy than me
can explain in very simple terms how just opening mail can get me hacked.

I don't think the list got hacked.  I
think that the virus went viral and the individuals on the list  who are
sending out the viral link are all hacked.

That's why I never open a link
unless it is accompanied by convincing non generic text explaining what the
link is to.  And even then I will not if it seems remotely suspicious.
