Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

A new day, a new e-mail worm

Published: Monday 2004-07-26.

It seems that there is a new version of MyDoom circulating at the moment, MyDoom.M. Of course it seems like my virus protection has broken down at the same time, when I run it manually it finds the viruses in the messages, but it doesn’t seem to work when run from procmail. Annoying, I have grown used to not having to see worms and viruses in my letterbox.

Speaking of junk in the letter box, there are currently more than 5700 letters in my junk letter box, the letters that were sorted out during my vacation. Fortunately I have had the opportunity to tune the filter for new variants during the summer for my personal account, so it has learned from its mistakes, but I fear that there is a risk that it will be worse when I get to work tomorrow, hopefully there will not be too many junk letters that got through all the filters I have there, but I haven’t touched the box for three weeks now, so there’s a risk it will be bad.

Tja, eftersom jag kör Pine även på jobbet så är det trivialt att göra en ;AADXY (select, all, apply, delete, expunge, yes), men grejen är att jag gärna vill kolla så att inte några legitima brev fastnat. Dessutom är ju risken för att skräppost inte filtrerats överhängande när jag inte varit närvarande för att hjälpa till att träna filtret på nya varianter under tiden. Nu sitter vi iofs bakom en SpamAssassin, den hjälper en del med inledande filtrering.
