Recent releases

  •  21 Jan 2006 12:02

    Release Notes: This release added default poisoning of the application/x-msdownload MIME type in response to a new worm. Full MIME-type poisoning support will be available shortly. This release was accelerated for security reasons.

    •  12 Jan 2006 05:05

      Release Notes: The unrar executable check was fixed to not test for unrar if RAR scanning is already explicitly disabled by $DISABLE_RAR_SCAN. Recipient notification now works when sanitizing on a relay (e.g. in front of an Exchange server).
