Outlook perhaps wont execute that, but, what's the point for the virus
creator in seding these files if they're harmless?
This reminds me of a joke, where the virus writer is asking the readers to
manually detect the files on the HD..
Anyway, this time with a new question.
Can I zip automatically all the attachments going through Anomy?
I reckon as Anomy checks the messages while they're being sent or received,
with a few more line of code, attachments could be compressed. Any Winzip
compatible algorithm though.
This would be great dont you think? To reduce traffic on the fly..

The attachments have double extensions with the final extension being EXE,
SCR or PIF.
