The new ClamAV.net is here!

For the past several months we've been working diligently on a complete refresh of several Open Source websites, designs and logos.  The first website we rolled out a refresh of was Snort.org back in June.

At the same time, we've been working hard on ClamAV.net.  When the ClamAV project was acquired in 2007 by Sourcefire (now a part of Cisco), we retained the original website and hosting provider the website was built on, but we took this opportunity to start from scratch.

As with Snort.org, this wasn't just a facelift for the website, this was a complete rewrite.  Much of the content you are looking for is the same, for instance the virus submission forms are still on the site, but we've build some improvements:
  • Simple Navigation
    • Much like we tried to do with Snort.org, almost all content on ClamAV.net is one or two clicks away.
  • Faster
    • Not only is the site faster to load on the browser, but it is less load on the server side too.
  • Documentation
    • We now dynamically load the ClamAV FAQ from Github onto the site.  If someone would like to contribute to the FAQ, they may do so by submitting a pull request (at https://github.com/vrtadmin/clamav-faq.  Which, once accepted, will be rendered on the main clamav.net site for all to see.
  • Elimination of dead links and pages
We really hope that you enjoy on the new ClamAV.net, and are looking forward to hearing your feedback at snort-site@cisco.com
