>Dear ClamAV users,
>Sourcefire and the ClamAV team are pleased to announce the release of
>ClamAV 0.94. The following are the key features and improvements of this
> - Logical Signatures: The logical signature technology uses operators
> such as AND, OR and NOT to allow the combination of more than one
> signature into one entry in the signature database resulting in
> more detailed and flexible pattern matching.
> - Anti-phishing Technology: Users can now change the priority and reporting
> of ClamAV's heuristic anti-phishing scanner within the detection engine
> process. They can choose whether, when scanning a supicious file, ClamAV
> should stop scanning and report the phish, or continue to scan
> in case the
> file contains other malware (clamd: HeuristicScanPrecedence,
> clamscan: --heuristic-scan-precedence)
> - Disassembly Engine: The initial version of the disassembly
> engine improves
> ClamAV's detection abilities.
> - PUA Detection: Users can now decide which PUA signatures should be loaded
> (clamd: ExcludePUA, IncludePUA; clamscan: --exclude-pua, --include-pua)
> - Data Loss Prevention (DLP): This version includes a new module that, when
> enabled, scans data for the inclusion of US formated Social Security
> Numbers and credit card numbers (clamd: StructuredDataDetection,
> clamscan: --detect-structured; additional fine-tuning options
> are available)
> - IPv6 Support: Freshclam now supports IPv6
> - Improved Scanning of Scripts: The normalization of scripts now covers
> - Improved QA and Unit Testing: The improved QA process now includes
> API testing and new library of test files in various formats that are
> tested on a wide variety of systems (try running 'make check'
> in the source
>For more details, please refer to
>and to the ChangeLog.
>You may need to run 'ldconfig' after installing this version.
>** This version drops the special support for Cygwin. Our QA process showed
>** serious problems with ClamAV builds under Cygwin due to some low-level
>** incompatibilities in the POSIX compatibility layer, resulting in unreliable
>** ClamAV behaviour.
