I reckon you're right!  Is anyone else as concerned as I am by the
seeming increase in JavaScript downloaders?  We're spotting quite a few
on our http filters too.  I can't help but think that without the exe
file many more would be getting through (before the scanners got a
signature for the JS code).  Am I correct in thinking that the dangerous
html checks are only applied to inline html parts?  Is it time to think
about also disarming html attachments?
