The trouble with a pinned list is that it can't keep up with the latest 
attack methods. Clamav has silently stripped about half a megabyte of 
stuff since about the first of October last, last hit Feb 12 here.
However while I'm checking, I note that a pastebin installation 
(pnopaste) has generated about 20 megabytes of squawks, so its gone now. 
I installed it so's I'd have a local pastebin. We get too soon auld, and 
too late schmardt. Has pnopaste acted up for others?
