Virus Checker

Hey guys

No idea how advanced Amiga virus's got. But I am going through a huge load of disk's and I suddenly thought what if some of these have a virus on them. I don't want to ruin my HD installed setup. Is there a decent checker that runs on 3.1 and checks when disks are inserted?

Thanks for any help

I use VirusZ. It will run in the background and scan discs as you put them in. It can also scan HDs etc.

Make sure its VirusZ III 1.02.

I think that's the latest version.

@ thomas, that is a great site!
I wonder what is the newest Amiga virus? Are any of the virii writers still active today?
Have they ever publically confessed??
