Dear ClamAV users,

Sourcefire and the ClamAV team are pleased to announce the release of
ClamAV 0.94. The following are the key features and improvements of this
version:

  - Logical Signatures: The logical signature technology uses operators
    such as AND, OR and NOT to allow the combination of more than one
    signature into one entry in the signature database resulting in
    more detailed and flexible pattern matching.

  - Anti-phishing Technology: Users can now change the priority and
reporting
    of ClamAV's heuristic anti-phishing scanner within the detection engine
    process. They can choose whether, when scanning a supicious file,
ClamAV
    should stop scanning and report the phish, or continue to scan in case
the
    file contains other malware (clamd: HeuristicScanPrecedence,
    clamscan: --heuristic-scan-precedence)

  - Disassembly Engine: The initial version of the disassembly engine
improves
    ClamAV's detection abilities.

  - PUA Detection: Users can now decide which PUA signatures should be
loaded
    (clamd: ExcludePUA, IncludePUA; clamscan: --exclude-pua, --include-pua)

  - Data Loss Prevention (DLP): This version includes a new module that,
when
    enabled, scans data for the inclusion of US formated Social Security
    Numbers and credit card numbers (clamd: StructuredDataDetection,
    clamscan: --detect-structured; additional fine-tuning options are
available)

  - IPv6 Support: Freshclam now supports IPv6

  - Improved Scanning of Scripts: The normalization of scripts now covers
    JavaScript

  - Improved QA and Unit Testing: The improved QA process now includes
    API testing and new library of test files in various formats that are
    tested on a wide variety of systems (try running 'make check' in the
source
    directory)

For more details, please refer to http://www.clamav.net/press/0.94-WhatsNew.pdf
and to the ChangeLog.

You may need to run 'ldconfig' after installing this version.

** This version drops the special support for Cygwin. Our QA process showed
** serious problems with ClamAV builds under Cygwin due to some low-level
** incompatibilities in the POSIX compatibility layer, resulting in
unreliable
** ClamAV behaviour.
