GFI Email Security Testing Zone (
tests for multiple vulnerabilities.  They have added a couple of new
tests and I am curious if the current version of MailScanner stops them

I am using 4.23-11 and the following test fails:

        - Attachment with no filename vulnerability test

Another one of their tests that makes it through has the subject of
"hide.hta."  I am not sure which of their tests creates this subject,
but I believe it is related to the above test.

If someone using 4.24-5 could run these tests and report back to the
list, it would probably be of benefit.
