I highly recommend the server-side spam filtering, e.g. SpamAssassin.
If your provider don't have it, you could find a provider that has
such service.  If those M$ security patches are removed on server,
then you have no more problems with hanging Gnus.  However, currently
SpamAssassin scores for Micro$oft executable programs are not
well-balanced, so I suggest you to add the following line to the
user_prefs file:

score MICROSOFT_EXECUTABLE 4.5

This works so well for me.  Once a month I quickly browse spam headers
collected in the spam folder on the server (to check whether all
they are spam) and delete them.  I am so happy now to not receive
anymore all those spam letters about Sexy Lisp (I'm not sure is it
Emacs Lisp what they mean :-)
