Lightbulb [bash] update panda antivirus

Since panda has no update script for their linux commandline scanner i must make one.

I know how to download the update file :

"wget --http-user=myuserid --http-passwd=myuserpassword"

This works the only problem is i do not know when changes
i cant get a directory listing or index.

What is the best way to ensure i always download a good update automaticly

has anyone done this be4 ?

I called with panda and they say do it manualy (yeah right)

please i need help with this.

The only think I can think of is to check the md5sum of the file. If you want to make sure you have downloaded it right then you will probably need to download it twice to be sure.
