    If you do safe hex, chances of being infected are low, yes.
    If you suspect a file, quarantine it for a couple of weeks,
then submit it to http://virusscan.jotti.org/en before using it.
    The detection will probably be lower than real life, as these
sites use AV defs only, do not do heuristics(they all run under
Linux).

    WTF ? Did you put that in, or is your AV scanning text files ?

ummm, hello?? "you guys" have been told several times that there are other
networks carrying this and other groups via a different technology outside of
usenet... in this case the technology is known as echomail and since gallaxial
and the rest of us over here are members of the same network, we get this area
from the same gateway system... that gateway system is the one that stuck that
message termination text in there... in fact, that whole block up there is
appended by the gateway system...

in any case, the gateway operator simply needs to turn that avast signature
injection stuff off for news postings again...

:) You have to remember Mark, some people have no idea how any of this  
works and just assume the internet was 'always here'. :)

Hell, I know one poster in another newsgroup who calls herself a SysOp  
(yes, a SysOp) because microsoft told her she was when she helped them  
with the MSN chat network (a propietary; read: ripped off version of  
irc). She couldn't tell me what a node was or how to setup a doorgame  
(doesn't even know what a doorgame is), but she's a 'SysOp' :)

However, it can sometimes help one to avoid loss of data, money, and  
CPU resources. Besides, it also works as somewhat of a deterrent to the  
spreading of malware. Users should be able to prevent 99 percent of  
infections and the AV/AM programs should help with the rest which users  
cannot deal with.
