RE: Virus heads-up

  • From: Mark Persiko
  • Date: Thu May 04 18:05:48 2000

Symantec has posted a set of antivirus definitions to
a public FTP site, to be used with Norton  Antivirus 
on PC's.  Here is the URL:

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/antivirus_definitions/norton
_antivirus/specdef/

Thanks,
 Mark
