CGVirusscan Retired


Due to McAfee not releasing DAT Files for Virex Egines older than 4400 anymore, and engine 4400 and up having lost the DeMime command line option, i have decided to not invest any more time in keeping CGVirusscan alive.
Everyone on the CGVirusscan list agreed.

Since there is ClamAV, which is a perfect Anti Virus Solution, this shouldn't leave anyone on a Mac without a decent AV Solution.

It's been a fun ride but I guess it's time to say good bye ;-)
After all cgvirusscan wasn't my baby anyway and it was almost dead already
before I reanimated it...

So: CGVirusscan is dead -- long live ClamAV.

The easiest way to get going with ClamAV and CommuniGate Pro seems to be MPP free. I am using cgpav which might not be as easy to install, but works dandy.
Enjoy!
