Following 2 earlier "Live Upate"virus def files this week,
Symantec's newest(14-05-2003)should take your file list
to 63,730 definitions.
You may also find that there is an upgrade of your version
and you have to reboot?but this does not seem to be the case
for others?

Cheers,Kiwitas,;-)

It must pay well to write virus' these days.
Every time I connect, NAV wants to grab its updates :O :D :p

It does give the developers a lot of work, who knows they may purposely leave flaws in the software and then pass on their information to their buddies to exploit it just so they've got something to do. Maybe the developers are paid commission by how many patches/definitions they fix up.

NAV has two teams working. Teams are:

1. the antivirus team, writes definitions and fights virus'

2. the virus team, writes the virus' for their counterparts to write definitions for.

Hence this is an iteration at its most basic.

:p:p:p:p:p
