Please do not load down that file. I will get one of my collegues to take up this matter. Thanks for letting us know about it.

It is spam, using a false javaranch return address. I keep getting spam emails supposedly from myself as well. JavaRanch has never sent emails with attachments and has no plans to send any attachments.
