RE: Gwd: crypted document
Hi Guys, It seems to me a lot of virus scanners picked up this behavior in the days of the "I Love You" and Melissa viruses, when virii tended to infect documents rather than be self-propagating worms. We haven't lived in a world where its likely a legitimate sender is unwittingly sending infected documents for awhile. It'd be nice if the AV/MTA vendors would take this feature out, or AV the message before they accept the DATA section and leave it to the sending mail server to bounce it. -J -----Original Message----- From: owner-nanog@xxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-nanog@xxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Chris Adams Sent: Thursday, August 02, 2007 8:22 PM To: nanog@xxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Gwd: crypted document Once upon a time, Hex Star <hexstar@xxxxxxxxx> said: > Why would someone in the ISP industry try to spread a virus?
