Re: Anybody patching Sendmail to filter _attachments_?
Look at http://www.decros.cz/~reho/check_virus. This is patch, written by Petr Rehor, that allows to invoke a antivirus software from inside Sendmail . It is a great solution and I have been using it for several months with several of my customers. Suffice to say, those of my customers which run Sendmail with Petr's patch have experienced very little impact during the recent virus attack. The only thing that the patch doesn't do is to handle MIME attachements, and therefore I wrote a wrapper (ftp.coldstone.com), that is less than suboptimal (but works), to extract the attachement first then feed it to one or more antivirus software (e.g. McAfee, TrenMicro, etc.) -Alberto -- Alberto U.
