The Extra.dat in ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/extrafiles/ was
generated on 12-03-01 and W32/Myparty.a at MM isn't supported by it.

The DAT-file in ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x
is 4183 but is only updated weekly.
4184 seems to be available in
http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/daily_dats/DAILYDAT.zip
and is mentioned on the website.
