Does anyone else see the Problem??
I am kinda frightended by the incompetence in my Company.
With all the latest Worms they got quite fast delivering the Virus Scanner updates...
BUT: Every time some worm surfaces and a few have been spread, they start and add this new Worm to the Mailservers Scanner. What this thingy then does is:
Delete the infected attachment, mail the original message (minus attachment) to the intended receipient, inform the sender (in elaborate words) about the found Virus, inform the receipient (once again in elaborate words) about the found Virus...
I chacked. The informational mail is larger (bytewise) that the virus had been ...
Okay, they limit it's ability to spread, but ... well they actually increased the effectivity to threefold ...
If you cen\'t beat them: Have them beaten! ;-)
