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.
Currently I (Georg Wittmann) am developing the xvs.library package alone
again, so for any bug reports, comments or new ideas just contact me at the
following e-mail address:

modify parts (mostly texts) of them to create something 'new'.
