Clam AntiVirus

ClamAV has been a staple on *nix mail gateways and proxy cache servers to weed out viruses before they hit MS Windows machines.

Linux users have used it for quite a while to scan Windows volumes from Linux, whether installed or Live.

Now the source code supports native build support for Visual Studio. Note this is different than ClamWin, but ClamWin is based on ClamAV

Dear ClamAV users,

this is the second release candidate for ClamAV 0.96.

In this version, we introduce new malware detection mechanisms and other
significant improvements to the scan engine. The key features of
ClamAV 0.96rc2 include:

- The Bytecode Interpreter: the interpreter built into LibClamAV allows
the signature writers to create and distribute very complex detection
routines and remotely enhance the scanner's functionality

- Heuristic improvements: improve the PE heuristics detection engine by
adding support of bogus icons and fake PE header information. In a
nutshell, ClamAV can now detect malware that tries to disguise itself
as a harmless application by using the most common Windows program icons.

- Signature Improvements: logical signature improvements to allow more
detailed matching and referencing groups of signatures. Additionally,
improvements to wildcard matching on word boundaries and newlines.

- Support for new archives: 7zip, InstallShield and CPIO. LibClamAV
can now transparently unpack and inspect their contents.

- Support for new executable file formats: 64-bit ELF files and OS X
Universal Binaries with Mach-O files. Additionally, the PE module
can now decompress and inspect executables packed with UPX 3.0.

- Performance improvements: overall performance improvements and memory
optimizations for a better overall resource utilization experience.

- Native Windows Support: ClamAV will now build natively under Visual
Studio. This will allow 3rd Party application developers on Windows
to easily integrate LibClamAV into their applications.

The complete list of changes is available in the ChangeLog file. For upgrade
notes and tips please see: https://wiki.clamav.net/Main/UpgradeNotes096

chainloading grub4dos from grub2 causes usb keyboard to fail
Kinda strange... I use grub2 in my mbr to boot everything on my desktop. For UBCD (for DOS), I decided to use grub4dos to boot the iso, so I chainloaded from grub2. When I reboot from Linux Mint... keyboard ok in grub2, select grub4dos (chainloading grub.exe via linux16), grub4dos boots to it's menu, but can't hit enter. However, a cold boot has no issues... hmmm... dry.gif

Benefit of starting grub4dos from syslinux on usb flash drive?
Benefit of starting grub4dos from syslinux on usb flash drive? Like this project - http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-multiple...-multiboot-usb/

Perhaps this is a basic question, I don't know. However, I have a usb flash drive that has grub4dos installed on the mbr to boot iso images, and I also have one that has grub2 on the mbr to boot iso images. Is using Syslinux mainly to overcome difficult BIOS (Award)? I could see the GRUB device number being an issue, but the PCs I have booted a usb stick on use the usb stick as the first device, some directly as a usb device, and some as the first "hard drive." In either case, as long as the menu.lst or grub.cfg is correct there doesn't seem to be a problem.

echo "Hello World"
Hey there, I am new to this awesome Boot Land forum.

For years I have been using Linux a lot, and I hang out a bit on the Linux Mint Forums. I have explored grub2 and booting iso images using grub2.

I have made a Basic BartPE usb stick and I am posting some Q&A on the http://www.911cd.net forum about BartPE plugins.

Now I am here. I intend to learn as much as I can about all of the PE tools, Syslinux, Isolinux, Grub4DOS, and grub2, so I can use grub2 to hopefully boot everything.

I made a multi-iso Linux Live usb boot stick using grub2, but having grub2 call grub4dos then BartPE, or whatever would be cool.

Off to read the forums here! (I have a lot of catching up to do!)
