I'm currently stopping it with a procmail recipe that is a common part of
the executables.

:0B:
*(135AAItEjhyJRI8ci0SOGIlEjxiLRI4UiUSPFItEjhCJRI8Qi0SODIlEjwyLRI4IiUSPCItE)
/var/mail/procmail/virus

Could probably write something that looks for the same string in the body of
the message and reject or delete on that.

Nice idea, and it would work, but I don't see it as being very practicle for
most applications. The problem arises from rejecting email from potential
customers, requested information, mailing lists, etc.

If this was intended as a joke, my apologies, my humor engine has not yet
recieved sufficient caffine to operate properly ;-)
