RUNS AS: EXTFILTER Helper application.

This filter is used to verify messages for viruses. It's the open-source antivirus ClamAV, formatted as an external helper for Communigate Pro.

Some Win32 CGP server admins managed to install ClamAV/Clamd on Windows, with a modified version of CGPAV or with the cgFilterMessages VBScript. However, forked daemons are not efficient on Windows. The fork function, which is very efficient on BSD platforms, is resource consuming on Windows; a whole new process is created each time your server processes a message.

On other platforms, the clamd/cgpav pair is often used. CGPClamAV is a bit more efficient than this pair, because it's a single process; it's also much easier to install since you don't have to compile it.

With CGPClamAV, clamd is not used; it's a heavily modified version of clamscan linked with a nearly-unmodified version of libclamav.

  • The scanning part of the filter can process several messages per second.
  • The filter can detect every virus that ClamAV can, including those embedded in winmail.dat.
