Identifies and acts on potentially dangerous e-mail attachments
'renattach' is a stream filter that can identify and act upon potentially dangerous e-mail attachments. It protects users from harmful mail content (virii and worms) by disabling or removing attachments that the user may accidentally execute. Unlike a conventional virus scanner, there are no specific virus or worm definitions. Instead, the program identifies potentially dangerous attachments based on filename extension and on encoded body content. It can be used from within sendmail, postfix, procmail, or pretty much anywhere else.
