You're not seeing things. I would say you can thank "W32/Sobig.F-mm",
referenced in http://news.com.com/2100-1002_3-5065494.html.
Allow me to quote a bit from the story:
The sender appears to be someone from a recognized domain name, such as
ibm.com, zdnet.com or microsoft.com. The subject line typically says
"Re: Details," "Resume" or "Thank you."
Attachment names may include: your_document.pif, details.pif,
your_details.pif, thank_you.pif, movie0045.pif, document_Fall.pif,
application.pif, and document_9446.pif.

Don't kill me for posting this, it may be slightly off
topic but I have noticed a very odd spike in traffic with these virii
that have .pifs attached to them.
The subject is random.
The body always says:
"See attached file for details" and they're always a pif file.
Anyone else notice this?
