Where can I find v5.42 of F-Secure?

Anyone knows where I can download the previous version (v5.42) of F-Secure Anti-Virus? The deal my university got doesn't stand for the current version (v5.43), so I'm left with a key that only works with v5.42. [more inside]

Old Version doesn't seem to have it. If you know of another repository that does, please let me know.

Alternatively, if you've got that version archived in a CD-R of yours, could you email it to me using a service like You Send It? I'd appreciate it a ton.

And just to clarify things (just in case), I'm not looking for a pirated/cracked version - just the file F-Secure servers carried before moving on to v5.43.

Best answer: This is a little sus. You need a subscription for the patterns (or at least for legal access to the patterns), and if you have that you have access to new versions of the software. If you don't have that, I don't think you have a right to use the software -- either way, without the latest patterns it's quickly worse than useless.

Anyway, the license says "You may NOT: A) Distribute copies of the Software to a third party, electronically transfer the Software to a computer belonging to a third party, or permit a third party to copy the Software."

Response by poster: Krisjohn, thanks for the heads-up on the license.

I had no idea that something like this would be prohibited (mostly because it sounds a bit silly).
