Because of your comment below. :)

Unlikely; but yes, that is why I ask: to see whether I am the only one
affected by this, whether people already know of this, and, if not,
providing the simple courtesy of letting them know. :)

Strictly not a FreeBSD question; but apcupsd is in the port library, and a
highly used program for people with APC UPS-es. So, if their site is
infected with a virus, is seems only natural to make some inquiries.
