    It depends on the company buying. They have Snort, so that accounts for something. The same team is kept.
    And given the licence (GPL), it's not going away.
    I think it's, well, interesting, i don't know what will come out.

    While I would never use a mollusk based security product :rolleyes:, I respect Snort. Perhaps 'Clam' could be changed to 'Grunt'.

    Will the latest virus signature be available to the subscriber only, that seems to be what Snort was last time I checked. I dont really use Clam AV.
