A potential security hole has been found in the trend-autoupdate script.
If you do not have the Trend anti-virus package installed on your 
system, this does *NOT* affect you at all, as that script will never be run.

If you do have the Trend anti-virus package installed on your system, 
you can download a replacement trend-autoupdate script from the 
MailScanner home page at www.mailscanner.info. Just read my News article 
about it.

I have also just released a whole new MailScanner 4.73.2 including this 
new replacement file.

It also fixes a logging issue, if you had changed a setting to "Include 
Scanner Name In Reports = no" and were not getting the scanner name in 
the system's syslog.

Cheers guys!

P.S. Spent an afternoon last week lying in an MRI scanner while they 
re-checked lots of things, but otherwise no more news from the hospitals.
