The US state of Arkansas decided this week all zip files via e-mail were sent out to block after several state computers were infected with malware. According to a spokeswoman would amount to a fraction of the more than 15,000 state computers.

"There are fewer than 50 machines were infected," said Janet Wilson against the Democrat Gazette . "We have multiple layers of protection. Some filtering malicious traffic and there are other measures. These filters have noticed the malware attack. We conducted a test on the computers in the network, and that 50 were quickly found and removed from the network and replaced . "

"The Department of Information Systems" that is responsible for the automation late in a statement on Facebook know that the only way to prevent the spread of infected files on the network is blocking was zip files. "We apologize for the inconvenience and will deliver these files as it is safe."
