Summary     : Clam Anti-Virus on the KDE Desktop
Description :
ClamAV Anti-Virus protection for the KDE desktop.

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.
