Summary     : End-user tools for the Clam Antivirus scanner
Description :
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of this
software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The
package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command
line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs
are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package,
which you can use with your own software. The virus database is based on
the virus database from OpenAntiVirus, but contains additional signatures
(including signatures for popular polymorphic viruses, too) and is KEPT UP

Update Information:

ClamAV 0.98.5

ClamAV 0.98.5 also includes these new features and bug fixes:

  * Support for the XDP file format and extracting, decoding, and scanning PDF files within XDP files. Addition of shared library support for LLVM versions 3.1 - 3.5 for the purpose of just-in-time(JIT) compilation of ClamAV bytecode signatures. Andreas Cadhalpun submitted the patch implementing this support.

  * Resolution of many of the warning messages from ClamAV compilation.
  * Improved detection of malicious PE files.
  * Security fix for ClamAV crash when using 'clamscan -a'. This issue was identified by Kurt Siefried of Red Hat.

  * ClamAV 0.98.5 now works with OpenSSL in FIPS compliant mode. Thanks to Reinhard Max for supplying the patch.
