    MoOutlook Security

    Title: MoOutlook Security
    Version: 1.4
    Platform: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000
    Download Size: 293Kb
    Rating: NoNags 5/6
    Cost: Free for personal use
    Writer's Synopsis: "MoOutlookSecurity cleanly locks down both Outlook, Outlook Express, IE and WinZip from executing malicious script base viruses. Rarely is there a valid use for the MS scripting from a mail reader, therefore instead of using the standard Windows script engine to execute potentially dangerous code it is just displayed harmlessly to the user. MoOutlookSecurity ensures the user can see the information, but not directly execute it."

    Description:
    MoOutlookSecurity prevents users from executing the following files:
    <font color=d2691e>
    - *.vbs
    - *.vbe
    - *.js
    - *.jse
    - *.wsf
    - *.wsh
    - *.hta
    - *.shs
    - *.reg
    </font color=d2691e>
    These file types are often used by virus writers to spread viruses.

    MoOutlookSecurity prevents these files from being directly executed. Instead of 'running' the applications MoOutlookSecurity displays them to the user.

    It does not affect the running of such files outside of these applications:
    Outlook, Outlook Express, WinZip, Internet Explorer.

    An alternative to disabling HTML e-mail, I suppose, but *.scr seems to be a major omission.

    Re: MoOutlook Security

    That looks *much* better than disabling HTML email! Why throw the baby out with the bathwater. I'll also grab that list and make sure the Attachment filter here covers them all.
