Copyright © 2002-2004 by Georg Hörmann

Name: xvs.library Short: External Virus Scanner Library Author: (Georg Hörmann) Version: 33.42 ============================================================================ == xvs.library - The eXternal Virus Scanner Library == ============================================================================ == Copyright © 1997-1999/2001-2004 by Georg Hörmann == == Copyright © 1999-2001 by Alex van Niel == == Copyright © 2001 by Jan Erik Olausen == ============================================================================ The xvs.library contains all virus recognitions and disinfection code that was formerly included inside VirusZ. This step has been taken for one major reason: VirusZ, Virus_Checker, Virus_Executor and all the other antivirus software can be updated quickly without releasing the whole packages every time a new virus appears. So simply install the xvs.library from this archive to your LIBS: drawer to get 100% protection against the latest viruses. To be able to check if the library in this archive really came straight from the author, you can use my public key with the .sig files in the archive. If you are not sure or do not trust the included key, then you can always request an original copy straight from me (by email, see below) or get it from the VHT-Denmark homepage, at Currently I'm developing the xvs.library package alone again, so for bug reports, comments or new ideas just contact me at the following addresses: snail-mail: Georg Hörmann Martinswinkelstr. 16c 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen Germany e-mail: ============================================================================ xvs.library 33.42 (size: 62.280 bytes) - Fixed bug in xvsSurveyMemory() that appeared with MorphOS port of reqtools.library. Thanks to Harry Sintonen for the report. - Added "Elvin-Agga" bootblock virus. Thanks to Johnney Greever for sending this stone-old bastard (it seems to be from 1990!). - Fixed recognition for "Butonic 1.1" and "Kefrens 2" bootviruses to avoid false detections when scanning for bootblocks in files.
