Quick anti-Nimda Sendmail hack

Author: JT Smith

It's posted at with this commentary: "Looking at the binary of the virus is noticed that it
seemed to have a hardcoded boundary and wrote a quick
sendmail rule to filter it out.

It will probably slow down your mailserver and break alot
of things and I am not even sure it works (since I
haven't been able to test it on a live virus yet). So you
use it on your own risk.

Use it, improve it or ignore it."
