It also appears to be the easiest mitigated. Just have your mail relays
remove or replace the "Content-Class:" header line and you should be

If your mail relay/server doesn't support replacement (most *nix ones
do), you can always stick a *nix box in line before your mail gateway
and use NetSED to replace the Content-Class header. Alternatively, use
Snort-Inline with a replacement rule like this:

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET 25 (msg:"Content-Class
replacement"; content:"content-class:"; nocase;

I'm not sure if NetSED supports bridging, but I don't see why not. So a
drop-in should be fairly easy.
