i have been blocking this with a sendmail rule:

HSubject: $>Check_Subject

D{PtyPat}new photos from my party!
D{PtyMsg}New MyPhotos worm.

R{PtyPat} $*            $#error $: 553 ${PtyMsg}
RRe: {PtyPat} $*        $#error $: 553 ${PtyMsg}

this will help slow down the dumber, initial variant with the status
subject line.

simply insert this as decribed here:


seems to help give you more time to upgrade everything else, its no
replacement for desktop security. i haven't seen the newer variants so i
can't help you there. it may be using a static MIME content start line, so
.. keep that in mind.

hope this helps some of you,
