'[OT]: virus action'

Recently we have seen this Klez or worm virus etc
go from us receiving maybe 2 per day to recently
5 or 10 per day at our end.

After realising that all these virus emails are
about 250kb I have changed my browser to only
accept emails which are 200kb and under. If anyone
wants to send me files or images please keep them
under 200kb.

I'm not sure if this is the best way to handle this
ridiculous situation but heck it's a start. :o)

It's a very good way with the right email program.  In
my case I can open the message where it says it only
got part of it, and tell it to retrieve the whole thing.
That way I am watching it come in and I can inspect it
and decide I want to open it.  (Rather than it sneaking in
when mail is automatically fetched).

By the way, Bugbear is only 50k, and 70k when MIME-encoded.
My filter is set accordingly.  The only other thing it
catches is those html-infested messages.

The ones I'v been getting are 50kb in size.
When my machine was infected with klez it was emailing it's self with
attachments that were 90kb in size. MOst mail servers it tryed to mail
to refused and sent them back I wish mine would do the same.

FYI

Bugbear, which is what I see most of at present, is about 70k
Get AVG antivirus, which is free to we Colonials (or some other free AV pkg
if preferred - most work for common viruses)..

Yep I have a number of anti virus programs
and do sweeps on a regular basis. But it's
annoying having something plugged into the
browser that constantly checks every incoming
data and further slowing an already slow and
buggy internet connection. :o)

Just seemed a better option to set the browser
NOT to accept large files, so they don't even
get sent to me. It stops a lot of those darn
spams with pictures in them too. :o)
