Lack of ClamAV

Postby tului » 16 Mar 2014, 00:18

I realize I can download and build ClamAV after booting, but why was it removed? Size savings? The ISO still isn't the full 700MB we can fit on a CD-R. I'd really love to see the ISO actually include ClamAV again as well a other utilities to increase utility, up to 700MB.

As an aside, is there any way to make donations? I don't want to see SRCD go the way of Parted Magic's heavy handed "forced donations"

This is a problem. Clamscan is one of the main reasons I download System Rescue CD.

I've dropped back to version 4.1.0.

Clamav misses me. Is it posible to do sysrescue's module? Or any other simpler way?

As I said I don't understand the size concerns. We're not anywhere near where a full CD isn't capable of keeping the image.

According to:

http://www.sysresccd.org/Changes-x86

4.2.0) 2014-04-15:
Dropped ClamAV to save 74MB in the ISO image

This is unacceptable. Clamav is a vital tool, just as tools like chkrootkit and rkhunter are.
I see no reason why Clamav cannot return, you could also throw in a GUI frontend.
There's still a lot of space left, I don't see why the size should be an issue for such an
important tool!

Please reconsider restoring Clamav.

It has such a low detection rate it's hardly useful at all.

Read AV-comparatives. ClamAV misses more than 30% viruses in the wild. It's unacceptable.
