McAfee’s virus information page contains two resources that may be of interest. The first is the “virus glossary.” It defines the, often unknown, terms that are associated with virus and security issues. It is a simple interface; the researcher can either browse or select the first letter of a word.
The site also supports a list of virus hoaxes. The list helps determine if an email warning is legitimate. The main page contains information on real viruses currently circulating. Other interesting aspects of the site include the virus map, for real time information, and regional information that provides statistics about current viruses.
