Karel,

For this kind of thing they usually release an Extra.dat which you just
place in the same directory as the rest of the dat and is apparently
picked up automagiclly.

Other then that you could put a rule in that filters the subject of this
virus until the 4184 DAT is released but it is a fairly generic subject
and many harmless messages may be blocked.

Regards,

Subject: [Mimedefang] NAI uvscan DAT-update

Hi,

with the new virus (W32/Myparty.a at MM) I noticed it takes a long time for
NAI to update ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x (still isn't
updated)

But now, I discovered the existence of
http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/daily_dats/DAILYDAT.zip

Is anyone using this DAT-file to update uvscan?

Karel
