Complaining about every single worm mail that's distributed on the
mailing list isn't really helpfull. Indeed, it doubles the amount of
useless mails.

For that worm problem: IMHO, the list owners should ASAP

a) make the list closed post (only subscribed members may post to the list),
b) if that worms come from a subscribed member, kick that member,
c) reject every mail containing attachments other than .ly or .png.

For Attachment checks, O recommend checking content type *and* name. Since
Windows seems to ignore the content type, malicious attachments often
are marked as text/plain (or other harmless types) but have a name like or bar.txt.scr or thelike.
