Re: graphical frontend to clamscan (clamav)
For up-to-date protection on a non-internet-connected PC, apparently you can download new virus data files from http://www.clamav.org/download/cvd
, and you could put those on a USB stick along with shell scripts for your preferred command line switches, including probably the switches to use the data files on the stick instead of /var/lib/clamav/ .
If you boot "rescuecd docache", can you alternatively copy new data files into /var/lib/clamav/ ? I don't know.
I would suggest that SRCD could be published safely with updated clamav data files not used in the beta issue. For instance 1.3.4 de-beta-ed (?) on 28th December with virus library dated 15th. But today's virus writers themselves can give you a new virus every day, so even a couple of days is too old for a virus scanner. That also applies then to writing updated clamav databases into the iso, unless you re-do it every day, probably with a CD-RW.
Also, since I used clamav from SRCD 1.3.3 and again from 1.3.4 (and did some other things), my Windows PC is misbehaving and I only hope that isn't because of SRCD or clamav.
Specifically, I had disabled AutoRun, using some Windows Updates and some registry entries. But now AutoRun is running again. I'm hoping this has not
happened to other people after using SRCD and clamav.
Incidentally, clamav claimed to have found viruses in some of F-Secure anti-virus's data files. I suppose that may be the point.
