scanner in the clamav package, and a tool for automatic updating via
the Internet in the clamav-freshclam package. The programs are based
on libclamav, which can be used by other software.
This package contains the daemon featuring:
- fast, multi-threaded daemon;
- easy integration with MTA's;
- support for on-access scanning;
- remote scanning;
