Don't forget that you do not need to block all file types. Using GWAVA you can block certain file extensions. It is also possible to configure user exceptions.

We've blocked several hundred since yesterday.  We had 7 machines trashed by it before we started blocking it. (Mgmt didn't want to block any more file types because some users might not like it.).

So it's important to note that GroupWise can still infect machines if the users opens the attachment, it just won't propagate the virus like the dreaded Lookout.

Nice that is only affects LookOut users (apparently)  I locked script
functionality (Ch0ke) to be off at the Domain level for all GW clients.

Just an FYI to the GroupWise community, I have stopped about 20 or so
of the gone.scr email in the last 24 hours.  Its pumping away.....

I have MTASieve hooked up to my GWIA, and McAfee which all runs on same
box... Added blocking of any *.scr file also, but when the box auto
updated virus defs it started finding the *.scr files to be viri.
