Re: emails contain poisoned Word documents

This is NOT news - I've been seeing these hack attempts for years. Our mail-server holds all emails that have a suspect attachment - *.ace, *.ade, *.adp, *.bat, *.chm, *.cmd, *.com, *.cpl, *.crt, *.doc, *.docx, *.exe, *.gz, *.hlp, *.hta, *.htm, *.html, *.inf, *.ins, *.isp, *.js, *.lnk, *.mdb, *.mde, *.msc, *.msi, *.msp, *.mst, *.pcd, *.pi, *.pif, *.reg, *.scr, *.sct, *.shs, *.uue, *.vbe, *.vbs, *.wsc, *.wsf, *.wsh, *.xls, *.xlsx, *.rtf, *.rar, *.dot, *.jar, *.arj, *.lzh, *.iso, *.xz, *.xlxs, *.r0*, *.r1*. *.r2*, *.z

Problem partially solved ... I'm thinking of adding *.pdf to the list but for the moment I've remove Adobe Reader from every computer and installed a third-party reader.
