Warning: Current Dat files no longer working

NAI decided, that recent dat files will no longer work with virex engine older than 4400 (as it seems). Problem is, 4400 lost the --mime option which is needed for cgvirusscan. So currently, this puts cgvirusscan out of order. We're working on a solution.

Am I missing something?

Both Virex 7.5 and 7.7 seem to use the same engine and both seem to have the --mime option left ???
