We are receiving LOTS of emails that contain empty XLS or DOC
embedded virus macros. These are getting past SPAMASSASSIN, Clamav and
I'm trying to write a filter for EXIM to block these emails but I need to know
a good, quick, command-line to detect an empty doc with a macro.
Is there anything available that I can use??
I have managed to write a PERL script to detect empty xls xlsx, doc and docx
files but I cannot detect whether they have any macros embedded
Don't know how to answer your question, but if you know how to detect
empty documents then why not just assume they're malicious? Don't
think there's any common reason to send empty documents around.
