  • Though this package says it's for BSD and Linux. It's actually a windows installer file. Please rectify and provide Linux package.

  • 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.
