The sender can, afaik, not help it. It's sent automatically if
you're first infected. However - who on earth would open such mail
attachment? And if doing so... w/o an updated antivira? Beats me...
RFC1341: (June 1992)
Security issues are discussed in Section 7.4.2 and in
Appendix G. Implementors should pay special attention to
the security implications of any mail content-types that can
cause the remote execution of any actions in the recipient's
environment. In such cases, the discussion of the
applicaton/postscript content-type in Section 7.4.2 may
serve as a model for considering other content-types with
remote execution capabilities.
We knew about the issues when we did MIME. Complain to the implementors. ;)
