[Esd-l] Worm warning: w32.Mypart@mm

For those that want it, here is a very simple local.procmail recipe to catch the lovely yahoo party worm.  If anyone would like a sample of this beast to improve/tighten this recipe 
just ask.  I diff'ed the four copies we got overnight and the only differences (barring headers) was the random number the sanitizer put into the "filename" to mangle it.

As always, beware of word wrapping, particularly on the X-Content-Security REPORT line, which is necessarily quite long.
