Yeah, that's pretty close to my recollection.  I thought it ironic that
this list -- a security list -- is populated by some infected idiots,

Why leap to that conclusion?  There are two more plausible possibilities.
1) Viruses are sending mail to the list address.

They'd have to forge a member's address as well.

2) Malicious individuals are sending viruses to the list.

That is also possible.

Why is it that people on this list, *in general*, tend to always assume the
worst of others in every situation?

Because I'd take stupidity over malice any day; it's much more abundant.
