Mcafee: total of 288 viruses were found and filtered.
ClamAV: A total of 292 viruses were found and filtered.
Sophos: A total of 252 viruses were found and filtered.
F-Secure: A total of 71 viruses were found and filtered.

Considering that in recent months F-Secure was the complete
opposite and double the detection rate of the other AVs,
I'm a bit surprised by this.

Is anyone using F-Secure? Am I using an out of date version?

F-Secure Anti-Virus Command line client version:
        F-Secure Anti-Virus for Linux version 4.52  build 2461
F-Secure Corporation Libra database version 2005-11-25
F-Secure Corporation Orion database version 2005-11-25
Kaspersky Labs. AVP FPI Engine database version 2005-11-25

... so the db's are current, but the binary is getting a bit long in
the tooth.
