Sigh. Another day, another freakin' Windows worm. I've already got several megabytes of the damn thing.

Daz's SpamAssassin tip of the day:

echo "score MICROSOFT_EXECUTABLE 10.0" >>/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
Why this isn't the default I don't know.

Now all I need to do is work out if I can filter it before I download them.

Update: 80 copies in 5 hours (about 12MB worth of crap). I think I'm hit worse than normal because I've been more active the SSH mailing lists in the last couple of days, so I'm more likely to be selected as a target.

I just set a size limit in fetchmail (limit 130000 in .fetchmailrc) so at least I don't have to download the suckers. I will have to clean out the mailbox periodically, though.
