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 0.99 contains major new features and changes. YARA rules, Perl Compatible
Regular Expressions, revamped on-access scanning for Linux, and other new
features join the many great features of ClamAV:   - Processing of YARA rules
(some limitations - see signatures.pdf).  - Support in ClamAV logical signatures
for many of the features added for YARA, such as Perl Compatible Regular
Expressions, alternate strings, and YARA string attributes. See signatures.pdf
for full details.  - New and improved on-access scanning for Linux. See the
recent blog post and clamdoc.pdf for details on the new on-access capabilities.
- A new ClamAV API callback function that is invoked when a virus is found. This
is intended primarily for applications running in all-match mode. Any
applications using all-match mode must use the new callback function to record
and report detected viruses.  - Configurable default password list to attempt
zip file decryption.  - TIFF file support.  - A new signature target type for
designating signatures to run against files with unknown file types.  - Improved
fidelity of the "data loss prevention" heuristic algorithm. Code supplied by
Bill Parker.  - Support for LZMA decompression within Adobe Flash files.  -
Support for MSO attachments within Microsoft Office 2003 XML files.  - A new
sigtool option(--ascii-normalize) allowing signature authors to more easily
generate normalized versions of ascii files.  Please note: If you are using
clamd on-access scanning or have applications using all-match mode, you will
want to review the changes and make any necessary adjustments before using
ClamAV 0.99.
