Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment
scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable
multi-threaded daemon in the clamav-daemon package, a command-line
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 freshclam program and scripts to automate virus
database updating. It relies on an Internet connection, but can be
run in a variety of ways to compensate for intermittent connections.
