What is that for kind of people that permanently complain about heuristic abilities of different Clame's family members and specially on Windows platform ? The guy who still is kicking and driving on voluntary basis as well that succeeded holding the whole Clam*s projects alive over almost so long time should easily get a huge golden medal for his great work, patience and endurance. I don't even speculate about percentage of those who really DONATE any money!? DONATE and than complain ! A such great and free program like diverse types of Clamses.. (Unix based since late 80:es) Isn't worth a couple of EUROS or DOLLARS? Yes, It is!
Very good anti-virus for Linux and Mac users. If you want the Windows version, you will have to use ClamWin, which is a open-source anti-virus that runs off the ClamAV scan engine and database. You can find ClamWin on sourceforge, too. It is a shame that ClamAV does not have a heuristic engine to block newer/fast changing malware. They should consider doing that sometime, soon.
ClamAV is a good virus guard but it is shame that ClamAV detects SourceForge's NSIS installer as malicious.
Thank for registering me,Iam requesting u to add me as your member who will take part in software development
I have been using ClamAV for years and have been satisfied. I have been doing my own builds and things have worked well. But on the latest attempt to build I am informed I must have OpenSSL to do a build. I will look into it but I don't even run a web-server on my two desktop systems much less OpenSSL. This move also shuts out Macintosh people who had Apple replace OpenSSL with their own proprietary software. I don't completely know what they are checking for but I do use ftp over SSL which means the client is there. Are they requiring the OpenSSL server? I will look around for some other AV for Linux desktop systems that have no services.
