I suspect that the filters look for Windows executables or graphics
.sh.gz wouldnt be recognized as such (?maybe gz would)
I use Linux so I dont worry about virus checkers, tho I do have a
firewall to stop all those nastier attacks which most Windows users
arent even aware of.
I am surprised that the list reflector would accept an attachment - is
that a security issue?

Perfect. Got past all my filters. Is that a good thing?

I will try attaching the file to this post to the list
It is gzipped in case it executes without the user wanting
I suggest saving it to the desktop or location as you see fit
Change the file permissions (right click on the file icon on the
desktop -> properties -> permissions)
so that the user can execute the file
Open a terminal eg Konsole in KDE
cd to location of script
( to change to root)
enter root password
(to see if script.sh is present)
to run script
I would be interested in comments
