As a CISSP employed by the US Government, IA lockdowns would have to
be specifically applied to Wine.  This will be an effort that is
outside the scope of the project, but AJ can chime in to correct me on
this.  At this time, Wine does have the ability to run specific types
of viruses and it would take running an anti-virus program within the
base operating system.

I do exist on the DoD mailing list if you wish to discuss this in a
forum that is not open to the public.
