   EXTRA.DAT
Instructions For Use
   
Welcome to the McAfee Avert® Labs extra.dat request page where you can enter a detection name that has been supplied by McAfee Avert® Labs or McAfee Support and receive an extra.dat. When used in conjunction with a supported McAfee virus scanning product and the current scan engine, this extra.dat file provides detection, and in many cases removal, prior to the release of supportive Daily DAT files.
Some new additions to this site as of 07/23/2009:
- You can now enter multiple detection names to be included in your extra.dat. 
- SuperDat versions of the extra.dat file can be downloaded. 
- All extra.dat files received have an expiration date of 5 days. 
- The size of the extra.dat files that can be requested has been increased to 1MB.
In order to create your extra.dat file, enter the name of the detection needed in the Detection Name field and click on the Add button. Detection names can only be added one at a time. You can review the list of names you have requested to be added to the extra.dat in the Detection List and are able to remove any you mistakenly put in.
Once you have verified the Detection List you can opt to have either a standard Extra Dat created or have a SuperDat version of the Extra Dat produced.
