Avoid mailscanner filename mistakes

Post by gosha » 13 Sep 2019 10:30

Hi

MailScanner: Very long filenames are good signs of attacks against Microsoft e-mail packages (KESSGSY201462_.pdf)

How to avoid that?

Thanks

Edit the /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.conf file and commment out that rule using the # character.

I find that rule to be a nuisance.
