[Announce]: Clam update to 0.93
« on: May 08, 2008, 10:54:37 PM »
All,

A new release of clamd is out and I have build it for the few remaining users of SME 6.x.

Enjoy,
Jesper

Release note from clamav.net:

This release introduces many new features and engine enhancements, please
see the notes below for the list of major changes. The most visible one
is the new logic in scan limits which affects some command line and config
options of clamscan and clamd. Please see clamscan(1) and clamd.conf(5)
and the example config file for more information on the new options.

Most important changes include:

  * libclamav:
    - New logic in scan limits: provides much more efficient protection against
      DoS attacks but also results in different command line and config options
      to clamscan and clamd (see below)
    - New/improved modules: unzip, SIS, cabinet, CHM, SZDD, text normalisator,
      entity converter
    - Improved filetype detection; filetype definitions can be remotely updated
    - Support for .cld containers (which replace .inc directories)
    - Improved pattern matcher and signature formats
    - More efficient scanning of HTML files
    - Many other improvements

  * clamd:
    - NEW CONFIG FILE OPTIONS: MaxScanSize, MaxFileSize, MaxRecursion, MaxFiles
    - ** THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS ARE NO LONGER SUPPORTED **: MailMaxRecursion,
      ArchiveMaxFileSize, ArchiveMaxRecursion, ArchiveMaxFiles,
      ArchiveMaxCompressionRatio, ArchiveBlockMax

  * clamscan:
    - NEW CMDLINE OPTIONS: --max-filesize, --max-scansize
    - REMOVED OPTIONS: --block-max, --max-space, --max-ratio

  * freshclam:
    - NEW CONFIG OPTION CompressLocalDatabase
    - NEW CMDLINE SWITCH --no-warnings
    - main.inc and daily.inc directories are no longer used by ClamAV; please
      remove them manually from your database directory

Jesper, are you also providing security updates for SME 6? If not, then you might be providing a dis-service by encouraging people to continue to use SME6.

An antivirus engine is hardly enough to keep any server safe... As I have mentioned in another thread then I still have 1 server left running SME 6, all the rest have been upgraded. I judge as long as I still need this for myself (and have my personal reason to keep this single SME6) then there are also others and I might as well share the work. ~500 servers are "safer" now which is after all a positive thing.

I would under no circumstances recommend anyone to stay with SME6 and as mentioned earlier then my support will stop as soon as I get the last box upgraded.
