Next week, a Network Associates Inc.
subsidiary, MyCIO.com, will formally roll out
Rumor, a Napster-like file-sharing technology
for managing anti-virus updates. The idea is
as simple as the Napster Inc. music-sharing
software that has the recording industry up in
arms. But, instead of clients becoming servers
to share MP3 music files, as Napster does,
Rumor lets users serve one another virus
signature files. From ZDNET.
