New versions of F-Prot Antivirus for UNIX released

30 November 2005

FRISK Software has released versions 4.6.3 of F-Prot Antivirus for Linux x86, for BSD x86, for Solaris SPARC, for Solaris x86, for AIX on IBM pSeries and for Linux on IBM zSeries.

Versions 4.6.3 of F-Prot Antivirus for UNIX include improved handling of corrupt files and significantly reduced scan time on big-endian platforms, in particular Solaris SPARC. In addition, versions 4.6.3 also scan zip files falsely claiming to use 64-bit compression methods, thereby fixing a minor vulnerability recently discovered in previous versions.

We recommend that users of F-Prot Antivirus for Linux x86, for BSD x86, for Solaris SPARC, for Solaris x86, for AIX on IBM pSeries and for Linux on IBM zSeries systems update their programs to versions 4.6.3 as soon as possible.
