I agree. I guess if it could be shown that none of the viruses on the
wild list use those extensions I'd say remove them, but if there's a
potential for exploitation then leave 'em. It's a lot cheaper timewise
for an end user to zip the file or other method like ftp if it's
legitimate, than it is for me to clean several hundred machines if a
virus gets loose in our internal email. DAMHIKT!
