Setup Virus Scanner for

As we are distributing many windows binaries on, I think it would be prudent to establish a windows virus scanner on the system to allow us to quickly identify any package uploads infected with viruses.

On preliminary review, I'm inclined to try the ClamAV antivirus solution which is open source and seems well organized for what we want to do.

Advice welcome...

I have installed ClamAV in /usr/local on

I have established a partially completed script for scanning new files. The script is in /osgeo/scripts.

I've stalled out at the point of notifying someone as it appears outgoing email is not configured on this server.

I still need to finish up the emailing scripts, and setup a cron job. I should be able to take it from here.
