The procmail sanitizer has been updated. The current version is 1.116
It is available via:

US: ftp://ftp.rubyriver.com/pub/jhardin/antispam/procmail-security.html
EU: ftp://kanon.net/pub/jhardin/antispam/procmail-security.html

- From the News section of the home page:

Okay, don't trigger the Excessively Long Header trap until the
header exceeds 250 characters.
Added asd to the default MANGLE_EXTENSIONS. If you are
overriding the default list you should add it to your custom list.
Fixed a problem where it was possible for the sanitizer to
overlook every other attachment in a series of document attachments.
Added clearing of the MIME content type if the attachment
filename gets mangled, to prevent the mail program from figuring
out what program to run even though the filename is mangled.
For the same reason, drop x-mac-* clauses that Eudora uses to
indicate the file type and restore the filename extension.

Also, the sanitizer, home page, gateway nano-HOWTO and a list of poisoned
filespecs is now available as a tarball.

Version: PGP 5.0
