Anyone know a way to get MailScanner/SA to detect executables embedded
within Microsoft Office documents? We've had a word file come in with a
.scr file embedded inside, wasn't detected by antivirus, but was
definitely malware. Would love to be able to block files embedded into
office docs based on file extension / file type. Didn't even know it
was possible to do that (embed an executable inside a word file) until
