Swine flu isn't the only virus threat this season -- school computers are also at risk. To help, Lightspeed Systems Inc. has created the Anti-Virus (AV) Strike Force, a new customer support team of security experts who will respond quickly to virus-related issues to help school network administrators stay apprised of threats and protect computers and files.

Customers can submit suspicious files by email to virus@lightspeedsystems.com or online at virus.lightspeedsystems.com. If the file has not been identified previously, or it appears to be a variant of another known virus, the file is flagged for review by the anti-virus research team and analyzed within one hour. Once a file is deemed a virus or other threat, it is added to the database for all customers and the public to access.

Lightspeed Systems' databases of Web sites, programs, viruses, malware, and other known threats are available at www.erating.com.
