John Norstad <j-norstad@nwu.edu> announced last Friday that a new version of Disinfectant, version 3.4.1, is available. Disinfectant 3.4.1 fixes the minor problems reported in TidBITS #216, and is available at:

ftp://ftp.acns.nwu.edu/pub/disinfectant/ disinfectant341.sea.hqx

In addition to the problem when scanning System Enablers on some Macs, John says that 3.4.1 fixes a tendency of the protection INIT to incorrectly identify INIT 9403 virus infections, using the wrong name.
