Antiviral contacts listing
maintained by Robert M. Slade
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  (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
(telnet:// and give the command "go virus").  (This
file is the basis for Appendix D of "Robert Slade's Guide to Computer
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.
