Description : An email virus scanner for the exim MTA
Exiscan is an email virus scanner which works together with the Exim MTA
(http://www.exim.org). It is written in Perl and designed to be very easy
to implement. Exiscan supports multithreaded unpacking and scanning of mail,
with a configurable number of processes. Exiscan has generic support for
available command line virus scanners. Exiscan can scan inside of MS-TNEF
and SMIME (signed) wrapped messages.
For I am using it here @WORK anyway I thought it would be a nice idea
to have it as package too, to let other people find their way to it.
Though it's GPL it will go into contrib for it needs any virus scanner
and I don't think that there is an open source one. It might be
possible to have it in main if I disable the filtering at all (which
would reduce the usefulness of the package at all).
I don't know about amavis -- that should be able to do almost the same,
but the exim hooks aren't turned on in that package. It's just a
sugguestion to do this package.
Thanks for the flames/comments/input.
