Returning to working form: A Clamsubmit story!

Community -

I wanted to inform everyone of the functionality of ClamAV Clamsubmit

Clamsubmit is a tool that allows you to submit false positives or false negative reporting(s) in ClamAV.

in order to install and use clamsubmit, you will need to install libcurl development packages.
(for example apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev)

-e [email]  email address ( required )
-h  shows help text
-N [name] your name ( required )
-n [file] submit false negative(FN)
-p [file] submit false positive(FP)

clamsubmit -e tmccourt@cisco.com -N Tom McCourt -p /opt/file

You can still use the below submit from the website. The link is below:


Clamsubmit, at this time, is only available on the *nix systems.  Sorry Windows users!  (We'd love to accept any pull requests to add this functionality!)

If you do use clamsubmit and run into any issues, please enter a ticket.

If ClamAV is not detecting libcurl, when you see the summary output of the ClamAV ./configure,
it will appear like:
configure: Summary of optional tools
              clamsubmit  : no (Please use the web interface for submitting FPs/FNs.)
