Gmail Virus scanning and more



I saw a link yesterday about Gmail adding virus scanning to their featureset. It’s very good to see, they have very good junk filtering at this point and had a blanket policy that .exe’s were banned (which would stop a good percentage of the bugs.) Anyway, it’s good to see this is added. (I wouldn’t mind if there were a config switch to opt out, to help send samples to virustotal or wherever, but there are other ways to do that so it’s not a big deal and probably better that it’s not optionally disabled.) Article (brief) here.


In addition, the sunbeltblog has a tip to make gmail more secure… use https:// instead of http:// in the address. Good point/nice, simple and effective. They received the link from here.
