SOBIG Filter instructions for Postfix 
---------------------------------------
(compile with pcre - this is in the OpenBSD Ports tree already)

1) Add this to main.cf:
mime_header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/mime_header_checks.regexp

2) Then put this in /etc/postfix/mime_header_checks.regexp:
/filename=\"?(.*)\.(bat|chm|cmd|com|do|exe|hta|jse|rm|scr|pif|vbe|vbs|vxd|xl)\"?$/
   REJECT For security reasons we reject attachments of this type

    Your recipe uses a regexp map, not a pcre one, it's very slow
(especially on OpenBSD), and incomplete.  Here's a better one:

(1) Make sure you have Postfix 2.0.x, compiled with support for PCRE.
    Run this to find out:

        postconf -d mail_version
        postconf -m | grep pcre

(2) Add this to main.cf:

        mime_header_checks = pcre:/etc/postfix/mime_header_checks.pcre

(3) Put this in /etc/postfix/mime_header_checks.pcre (the last pattern
    is supposed to catch CLSID extensions):


/^Content-(?:Disposition:\s+attachment;|Type:).*\b(?:file)?name\s*=.*\.(?:

(4) Add more extensions you feel you should block;
(5) Run:

        postfix reload

    Change REJECT above to DISCARD at attack peak times, to save other
machines the trouble of bouncing your rejects.  Of course, collateral
damages of the discards are to be expected too.
