Thank you to many who replied on and off list. I did NOT find a sample
of anything except the repo exploit so hopefully it's not in the wild.
And Ken, I love MIMEDefang and use it as well. Appriver and Zix donated
it to the McGrail Foundation (mcgrail.com) and the svn version has some
fixes and is stable.
DFS is also working on MailMunge which fixes a lot of the code design
she hates bringing a more modern filter structure to the concept.
With MIMEDefang, we do block a lot of extensions and we've published our
filter to do it before. Under "Attachment Help" at https://raptoremailsecurity.com/documentation
you'll find the list and
the rationale. Very good, real-world experience filtering gazillions of
emails using this list.
