Hi all,

Further to this - it looks like Sophos updated their IDE definitions for
Bugbear-B just before the 11am this morning, luckily in time for my
sophos-autoupdate run to catch it.

I also sent Sophos a load of attachments this morning that were stopped by
the MailScanner filename rules that were not detected as viruses by SAVI.

Perhaps you should send the suspect files to your AV vendor for analysis?
