    Looking for scripted updation of commanline- virus scan utility scan.exe

      I am trying to setup an automation which will periodically download and update a release area  (which will be used to run commanline based scans for a set of directories to be dleivered to external world).

       

      I have the Virus Scan version as below. I looked in some forums and fould that te ideal place to download the DATs is ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/dat-*.zip

      I need some confirmations:

      1> Is this the correct/reliable location ?

      2> Which files should be downloaded and extracted? Whats the diffwerence between scm-5851.zip and dat-5851.zip ?

      3> What should be the best methode to update the release area? Presently I just over write the contents of the dat-xxxx.zip file...

       

      Your comments wil help a ton.
