Is anyone else seeing problems when using OCR scanning in their anti-spam
I suspect there are messages going round where the PDF file explodes to a
set of images which in term drive a OCR solution nuts because it explodes
to aburd sizes.
In effect it seems to cause a DoS condition.

Some men see computers as they are and say "Windows"
I use computers with Linux and say "Why Windows?"
(Thanks JFK, for the insight.)
