- From the changelog:
03/01/2004 (1.141)
Add scan of ZIP archive attachment index for suspicious files,
quarantine message if found, and options to set ZIP archive policy
ZIP_MAGIC_WARNING); this also makes the standard POISONED_EXECUTABLES and
STRIPPED_EXECUTABLES lists work for ".zip" attachment filenames.
Reduce false-positives in Windows Magic scanner.
Partial support for CPAN Perl modules instead of external programs for
attachment scanning (USE_CPAN, PVT_CPAN).
Moved the Macro Poison warning text out of the script (MACRO_WARNING).

NOTE: Please either update to this version or apply the
1.139 Smarter-Reply patch from the website. The stock 1.139
sanitizer responds to NovArg/MyDoom attack messages, which
forge the sender address. This generates a great deal of
useless email.
