Mine hits things like Kobca (or whatever it's named... Not at the
machine ATM...) teh occasional old MyDoom etc. I can probably massage
my MailWatch maillog table for some real stats, not just my foggy
But however foggy they are, it's been hitting within the last 6
months, that is for sure.
Anyway, it's just a matter of time before this one is completely
obsoleted. Since it is a CPU pig, one should probably look elsewhere
for a secondary/tertiary scanner... Even if one has it, and it still
works... after a fashion. On my very long TODO-list. Sigh.
