As a stop-gap measure, would it not be possible to:-

1. Add an extension to all attachments that don't have one (eg '.FOO', by looking for the existance of a period in the filename already), then
2. Mangle/Poison 'Simpsons Episodes.FOO' explicitly.

I can see that a lot of other Mac attachments will get '.FOO', which will certainly confuse the Mac lUsers here, but it would stop this particular Trojan (wouldn't it?)
