scamp-5.4 released

This release features the removal of both the "INet-Msg" and "MSRBL" databases. All of the new "securiteinfo" and "sanesecurity" databases are now included in this release.

This release offers an improved method for adding or removing databases. My goal is to have the "6.0" version handle the addition or removal of databases even easier.

scamp-5.3 released

Optimized several routines to improve performance.

Due to the way certain definition files were constructed, it required that
a new test file be used to test the integrity of the newly downloaded
definition files.

Started implementation of "color" codes to display certain output in
color(s). Only partly functional.

Added BSD License.

Added "winnow_extended_malware.hdb and winnow_extended_malware_links.hdb
to the "winnow" definition files.... read more
