Computer Associates International Inc. (CA) will give away its consumer antivirus and firewall software product with a year's subscription to virus signature updates.

The eTrust EZ Armor product carries a retail price of $49.95 but will be available as a free download from the CA Web site through June 30 next year, the Islandia, New York, company said in a statement released at the Comdex tradeshow in Las Vegas.
