virus protection - what is required

Post by Greg Henders » Sun, 13 Sep 1998 04:00:00


We get pricing disks form many sources and cloean them up on Macs or Win95
(excel spreadsheets) and then save as comma delimited files that our SCO
box converts ... what virus protection would you reccommend?  Can we scan
with a regular win95 program (norton etc) to feel safe?

1. Virus Protection(not required)

Hi there,

I am currently in the process of validating a Unix software
application (on a standalone solaris workstation) and remediating the
system to ensure the system is in compliance with FDA regulations (21
CFR Part 11).

In order for the system to be compliant, it requires some means of
virus protection. As this is not required with unix, I need some way
of qualifying why i don't need virus protection.

What I would be looking for is a good description of how unix is not
susceptible to virus attack by normal means (e.g. floppy) or a link to
a good site that explains it perhaps

Thanks in Advance,
