COMDEX 99: Central Command Premiers Virus Protection for Linux

The Windows world is full of different virus scanners
for both the public and business world, but now the
Linux has its own counterpart. Central Command
and Kaspersky Lab have announced AntiViral TooolKit
Pro for Linux, which will make the scanning and
elimination of Linux and Windows based viruses a
simple task.

AntiViral ToolKit Pro for Linux entered beta testing earlier this year and received great feedback from the Linux community. After rigorous testing, AVP for Linux has completed and will soon be available for public consumption.

The AVP for Linux system can work either as a stand alone program or
an automatically-executing daemon which will scan both
programs and data files for virus signatures. In the
example shown to the press, the product moves quite quickly
through file-systems, memory and executing programs
with each file being listed as it is checked.

The virus signature files can be updated easily as the
data file shares the same format across both the
Windows and Linux platforms and is released weekly.
The product is set for release sometime within
the next few weeks, as Central Command is finalizing
the documentation and other release requirements.

AntiViral Toolkit Pro can be reached at their Web Site,
