The Secret Ops website now has the Secret Ops Basic and Speech Files. You can find links to these at the SO Mirror page. Also, Origin has added two links to McAfee to help those possibly infected by an earlier virus at in Secret Ops.
Boomer recently posted on the Secret Ops Chat Zone Origin's official statement about the virus, and the splash screen at the Secret Ops website also says the same thing...
ORIGIN understands that some of the files from the initial Secret Ops downloads were infected with the CIH virus. The infected files were present on the "East" Secret Ops FTP server between the hours of noon and 2:30 PM, CST Thursday, August 27. These infected files have been removed and replaced with clean, uninfected files that are now available for download. If anyone downloaded files during this time, please consult the McAfee web site for information on how to scan your files for the CIH virus. The web site can be located at:
(note the site address is case dependant)
We regret that this virus was found in the Secret Ops files. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
People with 28.8 or 33.6 modems and good transfer rates who started downloading Secret Ops when it first became available are beginning to play the game and voice their reactions online. So far, things are going very well and it looks like another awesome Wing Commander game. Also, the CIC wanted to thank a number of people, including Nocturne, Chad Millar, Jason Tranchida, Richard Williams and all our supportive viewers, for their extensive help bringing the CIC up to date with the latest SO mirrors and CIH data last night. We hope everyone enjoys the game.
As the 26 becomes the 27 things are looking up. This is just a confirmation, the downloads from download.com, cdrom.com, avault.com and other sites appear to be coming up clean. People are reporting great success with Secret Ops. If you haven't started downloading it yet, you can choose from our list of mirrors here.
