Note: These .DATs will identify themselves as being .DAT version 5000 to distinguish that they are NOT QA release and have been minimally tested only.

Virus definition, or .DAT files, contain up-to-date virus signatures and other information that McAfee antivirus products use to protect your computer against virus attacks.

McAfee Labs now provides Beta pre-release, beta, or test versions of these .DAT files for use in emergency situations, to combat a virus or malicious code outbreak, or to provide a first-level quick response to virus attacks.

McAfee Labs researchers use these files in their own work to ensure that they have the absolute latest detection and removal capabilities for McAfee antivirus software. Should you discover any defect or difficulty with these files, please use the information that appears at the bottom of this page to notify McAfee Labs. The message will be reviewed and noted.
