Summary: Antivirus Toolkit
Clam AntiVirus is an open source (GPL) anti-virus toolkit for UNIX,
designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways. It provides a
number of utilities including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded
daemon, a command line scanner and advanced tool for automatic database
updates. The core of the package is an anti-virus engine available in a
form of shared library.

Here is a list of the main features:

* command-line scanner

* fast, multi-threaded daemon with support for on-access scanning

* milter interface for sendmail

* advanced database updater with support for scripted updates and
   digital signatures

* virus scanner C library

* on-access scanning (Linux and FreeBSD)

* virus database updated multiple times per day (see home page for
   total number of signatures)

* built-in support for various archive formats, including Zip, RAR,
   Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, OLE2, Cabinet, CHM, BinHex, SIS and others

* built-in support for almost all mail file formats

* built-in support for ELF executables and Portable Executable files
   compressed with UPX, FSG, Petite, NsPack, wwpack32, MEW, Upack
   and obfuscated with SUE, Y0da Cryptor and others

* built-in support for popular document formats including MS Office and
MacOffice files, HTML, RTF and PDF

  - ClamAV 0.96 introduces new malware detection mechanisms and
    other significant improvements to the scan engine.
    The key features are:
    * The Bytecode Interpreter: the interpreter built into LibClamAV
      allows the signature writers to create and distribute very
      complex detection routines and remotely enhance the scannerâs
    * Heuristic improvements: improve the PE heuristics detection
      engine by adding support of bogus icons and fake PE header
      information. In a nutshell, ClamAV can now detect malware that
      tries to disguise itself as a harmless application by using
      the most common Windows program icons.
    * Signature Improvements: logical signature improvements to
      allow more detailed matching and referencing groups of
      signatures. Additionally, improvements to wildcard matching on
      word boundaries and newlines.
    * Support for new archives: 7zip, InstallShield and CPIO.
      LibClamAV can now transparently unpack and inspect their
    * Support for new executable file formats: 64-bit ELF files and
      OS X Universal Binaries with Mach-O files. Additionally, the
      PE module can now decompress and inspect executables packed
      with UPX 3.0.
    * Support for DazukoFS in clamd
    * Performance improvements: overall performance improvements and
      memory optimizations for a better overall resource utilization
* Thu Mar 11 2010
  - New version: 0.96rc1
  - Added gcc-c++ to BuildRequires to enable the JIT compiler.

* Thu Oct 29 2009
  - Bugfix release 0.95.3 (bnc#550929)
  - Changes include:
    * Fix various error path leaks.
    * Drop hardcoded offset limits for embedded objects.
    * Fix matching of logical sigs.
    * Fix handling of broken .ldb sigs.
    * Improve handling of PDF files.
    * Work around possible race condition during db updates.
    * Fix detection of encrypted zip files embedded into other files.
    * Properly handle clamd disconnection in clamav-milter.
* Wed Jun 17 2009
  - clamav-sles9.patch: smfi_insheader() doesn't exist in libmilter
    on SLES9, so we revert a recent change that introduced its
    usage to improve the handling of DomainKeys Identified Mail.
* Mon Jun 15 2009
  - Security release: 0.95.2 (bnc#511963).
* Tue Apr 14 2009
  - Security release: 0.95.1 (bnc#493562)

  - Version 0.95 also fixes two security issues:
    bnc#491935 and bnc#491938.
  - Removed unneeded tcpd build dependency.
  - Removed obsolete configure switches.
  - ncurses-devel is needed for building clamtop.
  - Patched clamav-milter up to the latest upstream version to fix
    the non-detection of virus code outside of attachments.
  - Improved rcclamd to print a more instructive message when the
    virus database files are missing.
* Tue Mar 24 2009
  - New version 0.95 (bnc#488317):
    * clamav-milter got rewritten. Standalone mode got dropped and
      using multiple instances of clamd in parallel got added for
      load sharing and fail-safety. The command lin
    * Changes to the libclamav API will make future changes less
      likely, but require adjustment of applications linking to
    * Numerous other bug fixes and improvements.
    * libGMP is no longer needed.
  - Drop support for versions older than 9.1/SLES9.
  - Improve init script of clamav-milter (bnc#445137).
