I'm running into the situation, quite regularly lately, where I have to do a virus scan of a machine that has either out-dated or no anti-virus software. Obviously, just installing some anti-virus software and hoping that will clean up everything afterwards is not a good solution.
Therefore, I'm looking at live CD's containing clamav that I can use, along with the ntfs-3g drivers. They work, but they are all out of date. Knoppix hasn't been updated in over a year, and the more recent INSERT is only at version 0.90. While I can update the virus definitions on both (usually), I want to run the latest version of the scan engine too for maximum effectiveness.
So, does anyone know of a live CD with an up-to-date version of the scan engine?
If the answer is no, I've been thinking about an alternative. Remastering a Knoppix CD is possible, but a time consuming pain. I know, I've done it. So I was thinking I could get the source, compile it (staticly linked to minimize missing library problems) and copy that to a flash drive, then use the binaries on the flash drive with a live CD, such as Knoppix or INSERT. Has anyone done this and has pointers for me? -- Fail to learn history-repeat it. Fail to learn rights-lose them. Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups. _______________________________________________ Help us build a comprehensive ClamAV guide: visit http://wiki.clamav.net http://lurker.clamav.net/list/clamav-users.html
