A configurable newsletter can be subscribed for at:
Enter Your email address and press go, you will then be prompted to include/exclude 4 different selections for Your subscription.
I have also found their website most useful,
especially the very detailed virus and hoax info.

This site - is one of the best for virus attacks, buffer overflows, DoS attacks etc... It really stays on top of things. They have a good notification newsletter that is sent out when things are found and it is a really good site to research different kinds of attacks and such. Check it out.

Matter of Opinion

by Packratt In reply to Which is the best securit ...

"the best virus newsletter" is probably a matter of opinion. I generally subscribe to a couple of them but mostly rely on a near realtime news browser from the SANS Institute ( ) that goes through all of the services including fprot, symantec, cnn, bbc, sophos, zdnet, and many more and delivers them to a browser type window on your desktop.

Of course, like I said, I don't like to rely on just one service or scanning mechanism since no single virus scanner or alert serviceis 100% effective.
