Re: Microsoft Security Bulletin - MS03-040

I just want to say that I applaud Microsoft for releasing this bulletin on a Friday night. The "Wednesday Night Rule" was never engraved in stone, and MS has said in the past that if there was compelling reason they'd release a patch "off-Wednesday", if it was ready.

Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-
Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message
it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did
not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble
their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first
place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for
your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
