Imagine the information security compliance guideline says you need an antivirus but you run Arch Linux.
libredefender is an antivirus program featuring:
- Industry standards - Scanning is implemented with libclamav
- Signatures - We have that
- Scheduling - Starts scans periodically so you don't have to
- Checkmarks - Extra green
The process is trying to change both io and processor priority to idle.
clamav-freshclam.service needs to be setup.
The configuration file is loaded from ~/.config/libredefender.toml:
[scan] excludes = [ # rust build folders "/home/user/repos/**/target", ] ## by default libredefender spawns one thread per cpu core ## set to 1 to use a single thread #concurrency = 1 skip_hidden = true skip_larger_than = "30MiB" [update] ## use data fetched by clamav-freshclam.service (default) path = "/var/lib/clamav" [schedule] preferred_hours = "09:00:00-19:00:00"
pacman -S libredefender
This code is dual-licensed as
GPLv2 OR GPLv3+. libclamav is currently likely to be considered GPLv2-only, so the final binary is going to be GPLv2. If the need for GPLv2 is resolved we're likely going to drop GPLv2 compatibility.
Note that both licenses have a "No warranty" clause.
