I wish you would have put some info up on whether you have tried it, and if you have had luck with it, it's strengths and weakness'es.
With you signed in Paul2 as a guest it makes you look like a vendor that is using Wilders to shamelessly plug your product(if this is the case its lame )
- can be used with windows and linux
- simple interface
- uses third-party Perl modules (way slower then c/c++)
- "If you discover a false positive, that is, a clean file that is incorrectly identified as being infected, you should contact the author of File::Scan, and not me" - means that when you find fps then you first need to find out who can help you by looking for the author of some perl module. This simply sucks.
I think it would be better if author of that software joined clamav project and helped them.
Thanks for the informative reply Mariusz.
And the Perl object author's webpage looks VERY amateur.
You are not talking about cpan.org are you?
Yup! Seems like it hasn't been updated in years!
Hey guys, I think any new AV is a positive contribution to the security field. Joining Wilder's just to promote something is a bit low, however
Hehe, then you should know that cpan is:
Comprehensive Perl Archive Network
online since 1995-10-26
2824 MB 271 mirrors
4227 authors 7742 modules
And trust me, look can be deceiving. Cpan is definitely not an amateure's site.
But looks like it...sigh!
Maybe this Aegis guy should go develop F-Prot for Linux...
