The Klez worm falsifies the "From" header of the infected e-mails it sends. It chooses an address at random from those it finds on the infected machine. So the one thing you know about a Klez virus is that it's *not* from who it says it's from - but the real sender has the apparent sender in his/her address list.

It is unfortunately very easy to forge the From header of an e-mail. This should be a reminder to us all that you never really know who an e-mail is from.
