anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface

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 command line interface. Features:

 - built-in support for various archive formats, including Zip, Tar,
   Gzip, Bzip2, OLE2, Cabinet, CHM, BinHex, SIS and others;
 - built-in support for almost all mail file formats;
 - built-in support for ELF executables and Portable Executable files
   compressed with UPX, FSG, Petite, NsPack, wwpack32, MEW, Upack and
   obfuscated with SUE, Y0da Cryptor and others;
 - built-in support for popular document formats including Microsoft
   Office and Mac Office files, HTML, RTF and PDF.

For scanning to work, a virus database is needed. There are two options for getting it:

 - clamav-freshclam: updates the database from Internet. This is
   recommended with Internet access.
 - clamav-data: for users without Internet access. The package is
   not updated once installed. The clamav-getfiles package allows
   creating custom packages from an Internet-connected computer.
