ClamAV is a virus scanner engine which a.o. works together with Amavis to check incoming mail for viruses. Unfortunately, it has two disadvantages: high resource consumption, and not the best detection rate (euphemism: in the linked results, it ranks at the end of the lists – same here). So I want to replace it with a better alternative.
- works on Linux ARMHF
- good detection rate (and low rate of "false positives")
- integrates with
- not too tricky to install (preferred:
.debfor Debian Wheezy and up, best via repository)
- free (open-source preferred)
The environment is non-commercial ("ORG"). The virus scanner is just intended as a "convenience" for those few "mail clients" running on a Windows system – which somehow doesn't justify a solution eating about a third of all available RAM on the mail server while not offering real good protection.
2 years later, and still no answer here. Neither did I find something elsewhere, and meanwhile ClamAV is eating almost half of the RAM, getting killed by the OOM multiple times a day.
For those of you not having the ARM restriction, find some solutions at Alternative to clamav that works with amavisd-new. One of the solutions offered there (Sophos) would suit me fine if it were available on ARMHF …
