this looks great, thanks for your efforts. However, I haven't found
time to test it yet. Could you also announce when you release v1.0 so
I could consider replacing the current way I am using in my Softlabs
AntiVirus Filter (source is here:
) by your pure-procmail routine?
FYI, I have just released version 0.4 of that tool, where I also
worked hard to replace executing external programs by pure-procmail
code as much as it was possible.
It is now available at
(although, the old address continues to work). The changelog, as
v0.4 (2004 03 07)
+ in response to the Bagle.J virus, which may arrive in encrypted
(passworded) ZIP attachments, a third virus main type has been added:
EZIP - which stands for Encrypted ZIPs.
+ when EXTRACT_VIRUSES is turned on, the extracted viruses will now be
stored in sub directories of the "viruses" directory, named by its
virus main type (EXE, ZIP or EZIP).
+ the Quarantine directory (TRASHDIR) and all its sub directories does not
need to be created for Softlabs AntiVirus to work, since it creates them
automatically if needed.
+ success on attachment extraction is no more limited up to a certain file
size, thanks to the introduction of a dynamic buffer assignment based on
the size of the encoded attachment and to very careful variable
+ attachment extraction should now never ever fail again. If it would fail
for any unknown reason, these errors will be logged like this:
Softlabs AntiVirus 0.4: ERROR: Could not extract attachment from
+ a new DEBUG setting can be turned on, to debug the process of
attachment extraction. See the Configuration file for details.
+ we don't execute 'echo' anymore - instead, a tricky pure-procmail code
is used to print a variable's content into a file.
