Clam AntiVirus is an open source (GPL) anti-virus toolkit for UNIX.


it Clam Antivirus è un toolkit anti-virus open source (GPL) per sistemi UNIX. Lo scopo principale di questo software è l’integrazione con i software server di posta elettronica (in particolare per la scansione degli allegati).
Il pacchetto fornisce un servizio di tipo multi-thread flessibile e scalabile, uno scansionatore a riga di comando e uno strumento per l’aggiornamento automatico da Internet.
I programmi sono basati su una libreria condivisa distribuita con il pacchetto Clam AntiVirus, utilizzabile con il proprio software.
Da notare che il database dei virus è tenuto costantemente aggiornato.

Ecco l’elenco delle caratteristiche principali:

  • scansionatore a riga di comando
  • servizio veloce, di tipo multi-thread
  • interfaccia milter per sendmail
  • aggiornamento del database con supporto alle firme digitali
  • libreria di scansione in linguaggio C
  • scansione all’accesso (Linux® e FreeBSD®)
  • il database dei virus viene aggiornato anche più volte in un giorno (vedere la pagina principale del sito per il numero totale di virus)
  • supporto incorporato per Zip, Gzip, Bzip2, Tar, MS OLE2,
  • file MS CAB, MS CHM (HTML compresso), MS SZDD
  • supporto incorporato per mbox, Maildir e file di posta grezzi
supporto incorporato per i file Portable Executable compressi con UPX, UPX, FSG e Petite

Fare riferimento alla documentazione per i dettagli.


en18 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 Read the documentation for more details.

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 scanner’s functionality

  • 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

  • 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 contents.

  • 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
