ClamAV

Antivirus or anti-virus software is used to prevent, detect, and remove malware, including but not limited to computer viruses, computer worm, trojan horses, spyware, and adware.


ClamAV is anti-virus software designed for detecting computer viruses, computer worm, Trojan horses, spyware, adware, 
e-mail scanning on mail gateways and other malicious threats. It is free and open-source software under the terms of GNU General Public License (GPL).

ClamAV provides a number of utilities including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner and advanced tool for automatic database updates. The core of the package is an anti-virus engine available in a form of shared library that provides numerous file format detection mechanisms, file unpacking support, archive support, and multiple signature languages for detecting threats.

ClamAV was developed for Unix
 
but also available for other operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS, GNU/Linux and many more.
