    Why the virus def. file (.dat) permission changing?

      We update McAfee virus defination file daily from ftp://anonymous:anonymous@ftp.mcafee.com/commonupdater

      I noticed that the files permission contain in avvdat***.zip changing from time to time.

      fox example, the avvnames.dat file ussually has permission as -rw-r--r--, however, on sept. 14, the permission was -rwSrwSr-t

      Why was setUID, setGID (s) added?

      Is there any issue if I modify the permission after I download the virus defination file? e.g. chmod -s

       

      Thanks
