In the immortal words of the peasant in the plague-ridden medieval English 
village: "I'm not dead yet!"

While development of the sanitizer has greatly slowed since 2006, I am 
still using it in production and I am still modifying it from time to 
time as the nature of email and exploits change.

The most recent modification is a change to the Office macro scanner code 
to detect and score Office documents that attempt to download malware off 
the Internet. This change detects an Office document attack I received a 
few days ago that is getting essentially zero antivirus detection at this 

If you are still using the sanitizer, please consider visiting the website 
and downloading the development snapshot. It is stable even though it has 
not been officially released - it's been in continuous production use on 
my mailserver for years.


And I am still here, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

(Now to see how many unsubscribes this generates...)

  What nuts do with guns is terrible, certainly. But what evil or crazy
  people do with *anything* is not a valid argument for banning that
  item.                            -- John C. Randolph <jcr at idiom.com>
