Someone on the ntbugtrack list mentioned earlier another possible 
solution for A/V gateways: checking for the extension of 
known-to-be-infected files, and appending the "+" sign at the end (e.g. 
.exe+). I have tried this on my first layer Norton Gateway, as well as 
my second tier email A/V - the TrendMicro one (and variations of such - 
e.g. *.exe+, *.exe*, *exe+, etc.), and have not been successful ... 
anybody else having attempted something similar (the reason for the "+" 
is the obvious extension name change inside the ZIP, if there is a 
password protected file) ?

That "+" business (sorry, URL may wrap):


is some weird artefact of that poster's system or their use of (a 
specific version of) NAV.

It does _NOT_ generalize.
