Package: f-prot-installer
Version: 0.5.14.sarge.3
Severity: important

f-prot-installer defaults to loading new virus signatures whenever a PPP
connection is established. I found this out the hard way when I was
travelling and established a [roaming] GPRS connection for 10 Euros per MB.

Even when not using GPRS I believe updating virus signatures whenever a
PPP connection has been estalished will be a nuisance because it will
degrade the connection throughput substantially for a few minutes when
using a typical modem connection with <10KB/s

I believe the default in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/f-prot-installer should be set
to not load new virus signatures by setting

This package has been removed from Debian unstable.  I'm therefore
closing this bug report.  The package has been removed because it
is obsolete (see #414318).
