No.

The only email we should get on a fresh install is the "Welcome to DSB!" greeting from the developers, that implores you to properly secure your sendmail implementation.

As such, this is clearly malicious. The payload should be offloaded to HSO for heuristic analysis on a platform immune to infection-- Namely, HSO's organic intelligence. Suggest shutting down sendmail, and enacting hard rules on unsolicited contact.

Also, how did we get this email after going radio-silent?

It's a weaponized virus. Hmmm. Should you download it, then test it on something? In a separate network, of course.
That's a terrible idea, why would we want to mess with another virus.

The only reason I see that is compelling is signature detection, after heuristic analysis. That way we can detect it as it traverses our network before being executed, trap it, and delete it automatically.

HSO should get a good education in computer programming, and software analysis. It's a smart one-- and it gets to know more about its creator.

Deletion is prudent, indeed.

Still,

HOW DID WE GET THIS EMAIL AFTER GOING RADIO SILENT!?

Maybe there's some hyperspace communication bullshit that we need to research.

Don't delete it yet.
Assemble a seprate terminal, put the file in lockdown in that terminal, so it cant act or be opened.
Then disconect the terminal from us, and remove the copy from our system.

Then Trace the remaining email.

+1, except interact with the file on a completely physically separate terminal that is not connected to absolutely anything else in our base, including ourselves, to make completely sure that none of it reaches us.

Still think there is a chance that this could go wrong and fuck us over.

Agreed.

one, why would a total stranger send us something like this.
two, the filename is suspicious.
three, we *JUST* fought off an intrusive program, and are unsure about our ancillary networks being in a sane condition.
four, we received it with our comm system turned off. (Suggesting either some magical mystery broadcast system, OR, that it was sent by some hidden local daemon.)

I am down with retaining it in quarantine, for offline analysis by HSO.
I am NOT down with retaining it for any other reason, and I sure as hell do not support running it on anything.

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Eventually when you go far enough the insane start becoming the sane

Also, as a published product it is likely that countermeasures already exist, so it probably isn't particularly useful for its stated purpose.
