I just got an email anouncing a new M$ Encapsulated SMTP Address
Vulnerability (attached for reference) and I'm trying to write a new rule
for this, but have 1 question. What do I assign as a SID??? Do I have to
look for an unused one from some master list???
Thanks in advance,

> Portcullis has discovered that the Microsoft SMTP Service available with

> The anti-relay rules will be circumvented allowing spam and spoofed mail
