Do the following to improve security during an outbreak:
Run Rapid Release to update virus definitions.
Enable the "On virus definition update, force rescan before allowing access to information store" option on the Auto-Protect page.
Start or schedule a background scan and configure the "Scan all messages from the past number of days" option to cover the period of the outbreak.
You can return to your pre-outbreak configuration when the outbreak has been managed.
