2008-01-05 Robert Hogan
KlamAV 0.42
o Disable and remove auto-scanning of files when they are modified. The approach is not maintainable.
o Patch from "Nadav Kavalerchik" to handle hebrew filenames properly.
o Fix to prevent command injection from Dirk Mueller.
o Fix a couple of compiler warnings (Dirk Mueller dmueller at suse.de)
o Disable quarantining of files that exceed the limit by default. this one is debateable, but it
seems more people like to not have it by default, as they think their personal archive is a virus,
while it just compressed really well. I think this also matches the clamav default, but I might be
wrong (Dirk Mueller dmueller at suse.de)
o Fix the ui for archivelimits to show "default" when its 0, so that the user isn`t confusing it
with "no limit". ( Dirk Mueller dmueller at suse.de)
o Restrict khtml`s parsing and not allow javascript by default in the update dialog. also,
deleting the filelist is too much because it is already deleted via qojbect (Dirk Mueller
dmueller at suse.de)
o Fix https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171414
o Patch to scheduled scan script from "Vincent J. Schiavoni"

Maybe I didn't understand correctly how this autoscanning works, but shouldn't it warn about viruses in files I just copied into my home dir?

I set it to scan my home dir, I copied 2 or 3 times the file I received by e-mail in there,with different names, but klamav keeps silent.

Autoscanning is enabled, and dazuko module properly loaded, but I don't think klamav is using it. lsmod shows the module is not being used by any process.

are you using the 'quarantine' and 'warn' checkboxes?

I had warn enabled, not sure about quarantine. I could try again, but I'll have to wait until I get the next virus e-mail (hopefully a long time later ;)

I got a problem with 0.6. It tries to load the dazuko module from /opt/kde instead of the kernel module dirs.

My kde isn't installed under /opt/kde btw, so that path seems to be hardcoded. All my envvars are pointing right to /usr/local/kde, so that shouldn't be the problem either.

Why not just run modprobe dazuko without a path? I think it's a good idea if the module is correctly installed in the kernel path, and not under some hardcoded path

I already got clamav 0.80rc installed, when you use 0.75 embedded in your source. Wouldn't it be nice that it used the one already installed in the system? after all nobody wants two versions of the same antivirus installed at the same time, and thus we don't have to wait for a new frontend upgrade to use newer clamav releases.

Otherwise, just thumbs up. Very nice!

Forget it, I just noticed it didn't build clamav when I built the frontend.

Nice proggie! again :)

Is QT needed for install?

Had a bit more luck with downloading the newer Dazuko.

(Oh, BTw Suse 9.0 is my distro.)

Is it possible you could please either update the version of Dazuko to the latest version or stop shipping it bundled. The release you have in the tarball is impossible to get working correctly on Linux 2.6.x. Thanks.

Please offer your next release to include ".rpm" so it can be easily installed on rpm based systems (ie: RedHat, Fedora, SuSE, Mandrake, etc) and the ".deb" extension for those with Debian based systems. I find it not only time consuming but a pain to extract, compile and make from .tar when the developer could do this.

Does this release allow auto-updating or scheduled updating of the virus DAT files? What compressed file extensions will it scan? Does it scan in Linux ReiserFS partitions as well as Windows NTFS?

could you make an alternative package without clamav. Because some people could have this and downloading this twice isn' nice.
Anyway good job!

The main reason its bundled is that Klamav requires a patch to the clamuko part of clamd. Also, clamav tends to change an awful lot, so bundling at least ensures you will have something that works out of the box...

Is this a tool for "windows files" security or does it provide a "linux files" scan for (both windows and) linux security ?

Not sure what you mean here. It's a front-end for scanning files on a *nix system with ClamAV. Does that answer your question?

No in fact i wanted to know,
1) if viruses or smth exist on linux ?
2) if yes, does clam-av protect me against ?
