Clamantivirus may get support from eEye?



This would be a good thing for clamantivirus. eEye is considering “adopting” clamav for inclusion in their Blink product. The idea is that they would improve clamantivirus and then start integrating it as antivirus scanning functionality in their product. This would be really promising for the prospects of having clamav (clamwin) do real-time, on-access scanning on the windows platform.


Currently I tend to use clamantivirus only on mail servers where the server can pass each message through it. The problem is that it currently lacks on-access, realtime scanning. So if you use it as a desktop antivirus program you need to have it scan your disk frequently. It will not prevent you from infecting your system in that situation.

This improvement could mean great things. (A good free (open source) antivirus scanner for windows?) It’s not certain yet, but I would love to see it happen. The one thing that clamav has impressed me with is frequent updates. That and a good real-time scanner would make for a good windows antivirus solution.
