× Few antiviral products inadequately detect 3proxy as Trojan.Daemonize, Backdoor.Daemonize, etc and many detect 3proxy as a PUA (potentially unwanted program). It may cause browser warning on download page. 3proxy is not trojan or backdoor and contains no functionality except described in documentation. Clear explanation of this fact is given, for example, in Microsoft's article.

The   Bat!   has special device access bug. If The Bat! is configured to
save attachment apart from message bodies and file has a name of special
device  The  Bat!  will attempt to open special device. This kind of bug
was  described  in  [1].  This  bug  was probably reintroduced in one of
latest version, because our previous test with this product 6 months ago

It's  not  clear at that moment if it's possible to write special device
(for example to send attached file to printer or COM port), but this bug
definitely  can  be  used  as  a DoS attack against The Bat!. After this
message  The  Bat! stops receiving of any messages (sometimes absolutely
silent, sometimes warning displayed that file can't be open).


Disable   "Keep   attachment   files   separately"   option   or   use
Account/Dispatch  Mail  On  Server  option to delete problematic message
from server.


Vendor was contacted twice on February, 19. No replies received.
