Antiviral Contacts Listing

by Robert M. Slade from 29 April 1997

Return to my Home Page.


This file is a listing of antivirus contacts, primarily those involved
in the production of a specific antiviral program, device or book. 
There are many others who are contributing to the antiviral arena, but
this list concentrates on vendors rather than individual researchers.
Major research groups or consortia are also listed. Please send any
updates or corrections to Robert Slade. (I have numerous other
addresses: use of them may delay the entry of corrections to the list.)
The companion files "Antiviral Software Evaluation FAQ" (AVREVIEW.FAQ)
and "Quick reference antiviral review chart" (QUICKREF.RVW) provide
additional related information.  All three files are available in the
Computer Virus SIG of the Victoria (BC, Canada) Freenet (give the
command "go virus").
(This file is the basis for Appendix D of "Robert Slade's Guide to
Computer Viruses".)
Companies which operated only as marketing agents, or products which
are strictly a repackaging of others, have been removed. Resellers who
add modules have been retained.

Publishers shipping from outside of Canada are advised to label the materials as samples per GST section 215(1), without value and not subject to GST. Also please note that among parcel and courier companies UPS and RPS have extreme difficulty in shipping across national boundaries. Those using these two companies from outside Canada must make special arrangements to have customs brokering dealt with. Brokering and customs charges should be dealt with in advance or charged to a standing account. UPS and RPS have frequently returned shipments to the sender when brokering instructions were not specified in advance. (In addition, I am in support of the proposed boycott of UPS over their sale of digitized signatures.)
