Best way of avoiding SirCam or any other email trojan (well, the user
has to click the attachment in most cases, ie. trojan horse) is use
"Procmail Email Sanitizer" at the following address:
It catches double-barrel extensions on attachments so it doesn't need to
be updated when the next VB script comes along. It catches legit traffic
too, but the slight hassle involved there is nothing compared with the
peace of mind this script provides!
