Everybody Unzip

In the latest instance of spam getting out of control, I offer this excerpt from a message we just got from our system administrator regarding viruses being carried in password-protected Zip files:

Many universities are currently blocking all Zip attachments. We are not doing that yet, but if we have infections as a result of this virus, we may need to do so.

I’ve been pretty laid back about increased traffic to my inbox, even though my spam filters probably only catch half of what comes in. This makes me angry, though. Grrrrrr.
