Clam AntiVirus is a GPL anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of 
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). 
The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a 
command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The 
programs are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus 
package, which you can use with your own software. Most importantly, the 
virus database is kept up to date .
