IBM AV/2 for a price from IBM, call them.
McFee AV as shareware.

I have read an article in the April 11, 1995 issue of PC Magazine (page 49)
on Norman Armour anti-virus software for OS/2. (They have a Windoze version
as well, but who cares?) It is supposed to be different in that it has the ability
to detect unknown viruses. It lists at $129.

Contact Norman Data Defense Systems Inc. (703)573-8802

Good luck!

An old McAfee virus scan is on hobbes, etc.  Indelible Blue sells 3 virus programs: IBM Antivirus/2,
Central Point Anti-virus, and McAfee VirusScan.  They are at 800-776-8284.

McAfee's Scan for OS/2 will do both.

See answer 1. I don't know what else is available but Scan works well.

Yes. Look for OSC-215.

Look for OSC-215.ZIP or something similar to this. Check on hobbes, ftp-os2.cdrom.com,
ftp.demon.co.uk, ftp.leo.org. All these sites should have it in an appropriate dir.

Try archie if you can't locate it any other way.

Sorry about the first post of this reply - I hit the wrong key at the wrong time (not even
sure exactly what I hit) :-).

1. OS/2 ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM


The McAfee tools.  Anonymous ftp to ftp.mcafee.com.  Go to the
/pub/antivirus directory.  Get the 00-INDEX.TXT file, figure out what
you need, then download the proper zip files.  There are scan and
clean programs for DOS, Windows and OS/2.
