With the upcoming release of ClamAV 0.99.3 comes an important change for Windows users interested in compiling ClamAV from source. Version 0.99.3 marks the switch from Visual Studio 2013 (and earlier) to Visual Studio 2015. Among other things, the benefits of this switch include improved C99 compatibility and much less restrictive licensing for individuals, educators, OSS contributors, and small teams.


Please be aware, this update will break compatibility when compiling ClamAV on older versions of Visual Studio. Additionally, building the Installation Setup Projects requires a Microsoft-provided plugin which provides the necessary compilation support.

Finally, we’d like to give a shout out to Keith Jones for the initial pull request.

We'd like to welcome CRDF to the ClamAV Signature Detection Partner Program!

The CRDF is the first 3rd party Signature house we've integrated into the program.  Their signatures are now being distributed to all ClamAV Virus database subscribers, officially signed by us, and distributed through the official mirror system.

If you visit ClamAV.net and file a false positive report against one of CRDF's signatures, they will also receive a copy of the False positive report at the same time we do.

You can keep abreast of who we bring into the Partner program on our Contact page on ClamAV.net, and we'll announce each new on here, on the ClamAV Blog.  We have several more we are working on right now.

If you write ClamAV detection, and are interested in having it distributed to the entire ClamAV community, and receive donations and false positive reports from your signatures, please see our blog post about how to join the program.
