SAVget is a Bash script which is a clone of the Windows SGET utility released by Sophos AntiVirus. In addition to emulating most of SGET's features (automatic retrieval of registered products and virus IDE files for example), it can also be integrated with email clients such as Mutt to automatically retrieve new virus definitions as they are announced.
