I've attached the statistics for the last 60 days on our systems.  The brown
bars are messages blocked because of bad filename extensions.  The red ones
are ones detected as viruses by ClamAV.  As you see, the red bars are
two orders of magnitude smaller than the brown one.

We see waves.  The last 30 days were quieter than the 30 days before
that, but it waxes and wanes as new botnets come online and old ones
go away.

David.
