Re: There is a little bit of me

It's not like this one organization would even have been in the minority here, ILOVEYOU was a major wake up call for many orgs to put more work into their email scanning.

Many orgs, if they had incoming scanners at all were just using signature based checks so of no use against a rapidly spreading worm based on social engineering.
