I guess ClamAV folks released the long awaited ClamAV 0.90.
This version introduces lots of new interesting features and marks a big step forward in the development of our antivirus engine.
As part of the Google Summer of Code program, we have introduced support for a new phishing signatures format that has proved very effective in detecting phishing emails. The ClamAV phishing module allows better and more generic detection of phishing emails by searching for URLs in email messages, and comparing the real site with the URL displayed to the user in the message.
On the performance side, support for the MULTISCAN command has been implemented in clamd, allowing to scan multiple files simultaneously.
PS: I know someone that will not go to sleep before upgrade to this version somewhere…Tags:anti virus, email
