Introducing ClamAV community signatures

I am pleased to announce the creation of a new ClamAV signatures contribution program. My name is Alain Zidouemba and I will be managing this program.

If you would like to submit a ClamAV signature, you may do so by emailing community-sigs [at] lists [dot]  clamav [dot] net. We will require that each signature:

- not be a hash-based signature
- be accompanied by a MD5/SHA1/SHA256 for a sample the signature is meant to detect.
- come with a brief description of the threat the signature is trying to detect and what the signature is looking for

Please DO NOT attach malware to your email. Instead, submit your sample here

Signatures submitted will be tweaked if necessary in order to conform to our standards. After the signature passes quality assurance testing, it will be released with proper attribution unless you prefer to remain anonymous.

You can subscribe to the mailing list here. More information about this program will be added in the FAQ in a few days.

We look forward to a fruitful collaboration on community-sigs [at] lists [dot] clamav [dot] net.
