ClamAV 0.99 contains major new features and changes. YARA rules, Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, revamped on-access scanning for Linux, and other new features join the many great features of ClamAV:

  • Processing of YARA rules (some limitations - see signatures.pdf).
  • Support in ClamAV logical signatures for many of the features added for YARA, such as Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, alternate strings, and YARA string attributes. See signatures.pdf for full details.
  • New and improved on-access scanning for Linux. See the recent blog post and clamdoc.pdf for details on the new on-access capabilities.
  • A new ClamAV API callback function that is invoked when a virus is found. This is intended primarily for applications running in all-match mode. Any applications using all-match mode must use the new callback function to record and report detected viruses.
  • Configurable default password list to attempt zip file decryption.
  • TIFF file support.
  • A new signature target type for designating signatures to run against files with unknown file types.
  • Improved fidelity of the "data loss prevention" heuristic algorithm. Code supplied by Bill Parker.
  • Support for LZMA decompression within Adobe Flash files.
  • Support for MSO attachments within Microsoft Office 2003 XML files.
  • A new sigtool option(--ascii-normalize) allowing signature authors to more easily generate normalized versions of ascii files.

Please note: If you are using clamd on-access scanning or have applications using all-match mode, you will want to review the changes and make any necessary adjustments before using ClamAV 0.99.

checking for libpcre installation... no

Please add pcre-devel to the BuildRequires line for el6 and el5. That's all it took for me to get the new PCRE feature in 0.99 to be enable in my test build of your update. (I actually only tested el6). Based upon the build logs, el7, fc22, fc23 and fc24 builds should already be good to go. Thanks for getting this great new update for us!
