Me three!!!

yeah, 3 of my clients got delt the exact same thing, I think sorted it out
by adding it to the /etc/procmailrc/poisoned file list.
before doing this I had to end up doing mail -f to all the users mail
boxes so that I could delete the infected mails that was still there.

Only been on this list 2 days, but I have to say the procmail security
filter is a blessing planning to use it more and more :)))) and it has
sooo much scope for more more development for further things that arise.
