  The new improved Viruswarn.com

Welcome to the new, improved viruswarn.com.  While we're just starting to get the site back up and running, we have some exciting new capabilities.  For the first time the forums for Viruswarn will be integrated directly into the website, rather than hosted at www.leedrake.com.  You will be able to interact with the authors and participate in online discussions.

In addition, we plan to syndicate our blogs, and all our forum content so that you can easily reproduce it on your own site, or add it to your site's main web page.  This syndication capability will make us your source for virus and security warning info.

Once you've registered and logged in you'll have access to exclusive members-only content.
