Excellent virus info website

Excellent virus info website

Excellent virus info website


I would just like to let everyone know that I have found SARC.COM to be an excellent place to find out about viruses.  I have used the site to learn about the different types of viruses and look up various virus names.  I have also used it to check whether virus warnings (which we regularly receive!) are hoaxes - most of them are.

I believe the site is by Symantec as they told me about the site and it allows you to download the latest Symantec virus defs.


RE: Excellent virus info website

It is the Symantec Anti-Virus Research Centre.

They have been going for years and are dedicated to catching and killing viruses - it is the only place to go...

RE: Excellent virus info website

On the FAQ list is a path to SARC and lots more.
