Clam from what I have read a little while ago was taken over by some corporate outfit whose name escapes me at the moment and is not considered quite as good as it used to be due to neglected interest in maintenance. Not my opinion, just information I read online.

Cisco own ClamAV  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clam_AntiVirus

Thanks tomt.

It seems from article Sourcefire bought ClamAV, and then Cisco bought Sourcefire, Sourcefire it says made Snort (Intrusion prevention system) -
"Snort entered InfoWorld's Open Source Hall of Fame as one of the "greatest [pieces of] open source software of all time" 

Snort wiki

Would it be Sourcefire do the work on ClamAV ?
