clamassassin is a simple virus filter wrapper for ClamAV for use in procmail filters and similiar applications. clamassassin's interface is similiar to that of spamassassin, making it easy to implement for those familiar with that tool. clamassassin is designed with an emphasis on security, robustness and simplicity.

clamassassin is developed and tested on Solaris 10 but should work on any unix-like system which meet the requirements in the README. It has been reported to work on various versions of Unix, Linux, and BSD platforms. ClamAV 0.90 or higher is supported, but we recommend using the latest supported version of ClamAV.

clamassassin is Made in Taiwan.
