Third Party Add-on signatures for ClamAV

Rich 2: well, yes, it would wouldn't it? It's an anti-virus filter, and NOT an anti-spam filter!!!

Correct.... but you can add signatures to ClamAV, using the ClamAV engine to actually detect spam....

In short...

Clam AntiVirus is a GPL anti-virus toolkit for UNIX and was *coded to detect email viruses*, it's scanning engine is very flexible and has been used to provide *add-on* signatures.

Sanesecurity add-on signatures provide enhanced email security against the following email types:

Phishing, Spear phishing, Fake lottery, Ecard malware, Casino, Fake jobs, Fake loans, 419s, Fake Diplomas, porn, emailed malware and other general spam.
