I have Norton AV but unable to find anything on there site. Any links to these if any would help.
They are currently sitting in my quarantene box.

I think that message.pif is a virus.

Or rather it contains a virus.

i would suggest a google search, but if they are quarantined it is for a reason.

pif is a variant of the new netsky virus.

I think they are all norton files pif is for DOS

  johnnyrocker 00:18 07 Mar 2004

why quarantine then? might the file be nortons name for the quarantine folder

Netsky arrives as a .pif, so does Beagle

  woodchip 00:21 07 Mar 2004

If they are in quarantine folder they cannot do anything

  johnnyrocker 00:22 07 Mar 2004

best get rid.

I'm wrong - Beagle arrives in a .zip
