This release of ClamAV introduces new malware detection mechanisms and other
significant improvements to the scan engine. The key features 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.
- Support for DazukoFS in clamd
- 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.
