[Esd-l] new poison files

We've seen several infections on campus (in other departments - but 
not here though) of numerous <filename>.EXE   carrying virus payloads.  

I have also decided to inherit the ultimate prevention and ban ALL .exe
files. Virus infections have gone from 5 per week to absolutely none.

If someone wishes to transfer an EXE via email, we ask that
they ZIP the file.  Most of my users cannot figure out WinZip
or PkZip, so we prevent abuse of email as an FTP client.
