Virus checking

 I have had a look at this, and it seems to use the VirusScan 3 engine
and not the version 4. I have found it doesn't detect some of the latest
word macro viruses. Even when I have downloaded the latest DAT files.

Network Associates makes a Virus Scanner for UNIX called uvscan.  You
should be able to find it on their "licensed" ftp server.  This scanner
scans for all the same virii as the NT version.
