[Dshield] Mail list for new virus events

I don't know the protocol each vendor follows and I think it has
something to do with where you are on the vendors list.  I find that
Symantec is usually a day behind and only sends a notification on a
level three or above.  McAfee is hit or miss but F-Secure and Trend are
very timely.

Thanx, Paul
