Topic: Embedded files prior to Acrobat 4/PDF1.3?

I'm researching the subject of embedding files in PDF and came across the following from a notice about the recent "Peachy" virus:

"Q: What versions of full Acrobat are affected?
A: Acrobat 4.0 and 5.0 are susceptible to this virus. While Acrobat 3.0 provided the capability to send and receive file attachments, the mechanism in that version was architecturally different and is not susceptible to this virus."

This was posted Aug 15 by Adobe on the Acrobat/Win User to User forum at their web site^37425@.ef39082

Does anyone know what they could have meant in regards to Acrobat 3 and file attachments? I can't find anything about this in the PDF Reference Manual or any other source.

Thank you for your help.
