    [Moderator: This is not even amusing, this is crap. Posturing and
     spindoctoring from NAI in the face of appearing behind the times.
     For those of you not aware, NAI purchased SNI which had it's superior
     Ballista scanning product. Once acquired, NAI dropped the Linux support
     from Ballista and moved to an exclusive Win* based product. Version 2.4
     supported linux, yet 2.5 did not. And this announcement is 'news' why?
     And visiting ftp.nai.com /pub/antivirus/unix/linux reveals previous
     products supporting linux.]

    Network Associates adds Linux product

         Network Associates, which has focused almost exclusively on software
    for Windows NT, is adding a Linux version of its CyberCop Scanner tool for
    probing networks to detect security vulnerabilities. 
         The company said security consultants and companies that test the
    security of networks have shown great interest in Linux-based security
    tools. For security audits, Network Associates said consultants preferred
    Linux over Sun Solaris by a ratio of about 50 to 1. 
         "Network Associates responded to our security professionals' need to
    use CyberCop in conjunction with several Linux-based Ernst & Young
    proprietary security tools,"  George Kurtz, director of the Ernst & Young
    security profiling services, said in a statement. 
         CyberCop Scanner is the first Network Associates' product on the
    Linux platform.
