vulnerability attack".  I was on 3.21-1 and guess this was not part of the

A brief check indicates that all came from a number of mailing lists that
my users subscribe to.  Examples like Daily Dilbert list, Oracle list,CNet list...etc.

I haven't had time to try to dive into the detection perl code for it and
is wondering if someone facing the similar issue.  From what I see, the is
not configurable option on mailscanner.conf to control this new detection

Currently configured to keep whole infected message.  If someone wants to
