Dreddnet -> W32.Swen slamming Exchange (22.Oct.2003 4:04:00 PM)

Within the last week my Exchange2k server has been slammed with Swen viruses. I have Symantec Antivirus with Exchange protection on there, but my inbox is still getting full of virus warnings that have been blocked. I keep getting emails about a new update from Microsoft or an Admin sending me an email titled Advice. Also is a pack of failure notices from sites I never sent to.

I checked all PC's on my network and none have the virus on them. Also ran the removal tool from Symantec and it said clean. What can I do to stop this from flooding my exchange and my inbox?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Checkout Vamsoft's script:


This is an SMTP transport event sink script developed specifically to filter Win32.Swen.A@mm worm emails. Emails that seems to be infected by the worm are dropped.

So far so good using that script.

How many good emails do you think this will block though? I have MailEssentials now to prevent many spam items and such from getting thru and those that are blocked get forwarded to a special account that I review.

Thanks for the tip!

I have no idea, would suggest you ask this question in the Vamsoft newsgroups - news.vamsoft.com.
