Popular date with McAfee - they stopped publishing DATs for their WebShield product, which we used for over 8 years.  
Check out their link for EOL status for all of their products:

We were totally unaware of this, too.  Can you point me to an announcement or something from McAfee?

Tim we did get a heads up and have since migrated to OES2 to solve issues with backupexec and McAfee, but McAfee will still let you download sdat files but will not update the engine, we are considering several AV solutions and we are leaning toward Kapersky or Sopohos.

Way off topic here, but what do you all use for AV on your Netware file servers? McAfee discontinued Netshield and as of March 31, have stopped releasing DAT files. It would have been nice if they gave us a heads up first.
