    Re: ClamAV 2.0 for Windows released

    I just installed it, seems exactly the same as Immunet protect 2.0, only differences are different tray icon and a ClamAV icon in the GUI. It also has the same free/paid editions as IMP 2.0. However, they are going their own way with future versions:

    Thats very interesting would be like an open source signatures database, maybe everybody can add signatures to this AV easily.
    The engine is SPERO, it's one of the 3 engines that Immunet pro uses.

    Testing out the legendary clam. So no difference between this and Immunet Free?

    The paid 'plus' version, is the same as immunet's paid version?
    http://store.sourcefire.com/plus/index.html

    And from my understanding, the upcoming version from the legendary clam will be different, adding signatures that are already in their on-demand scanner?

    If a user were to part with some cash, any difference in who receives it (Immunet or the legendary clam)? I'm guessing there's no difference between the two, just name and task tray icon. :D

    So 2.0 is now closed source or still open? One of the great things about clam was that it was open source. I don't see how they could charge if they had a freely available open source repo?

    Doesn't really sounds good to me, but hopefully they'll be in some detection tests at some point.
