Page 44: New virus filter
We have a site licence for McAfee, which has a fairly nice unix
command-line version. Using this means we can detect email worms
more accurately, and we can also spot other kinds of viruses.
MIME is the standard for multimedia email and attached files etc.
Understanding MIME means that the virus filter can respond by
changing the message or just part of it, rather than bouncing or
replacing or discarding the whole message. It can also fix some
MIME formatting errors that trigger bugs in user agents.
