In 4.49.7 it is commented out:
#deny   \.wmf$                  Windows Metafile security vulnerability
But I see in 4.50.6 it is uncommented already, so everything is OK now.

I meant not only updates and antivirus software on a client machine,
but antivirus on MailScanner box itself. It really shoud catch such old
vulnerabilities. But anyway, it doesn't matter, Julian already decided.
