    A reminder that the V1 DAT End of life is approaching.

      March 31, 2010 will be the last day of support for VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i.

      Additionally, March 31, 2010 will be the last day V1 DATs will be transmitted.
      On April 1, 2010, McAfee Labs will no longer produce or ship V1 DATs. THIS MEANS THAT ANY V1 ENABLED PRODUCT WILL FAIL TO UPDATE DAT FILES.
       
      Because VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i is reaching EOL and also depends on V1 DATS for signature updates, McAfee recommends moving to the latest supported product version.

      Please refer to the following McAfee information for more details:
