Another stand-alone scanner - Virus Hammer
« on: January 02, 2010, 09:11:07 PM »
My malware fighters,

Just might be handy to close the vulnerability gap to scan with a stand-alone open software scanner, like ClamWin and this standalone online version of Vrus Hammer.
I worked it in Firefox from here: http://www.openantivirus.org/virushammer.php

You need this to work it from within your browser: http://java.sun.com/cgi-bin/javawebstart-platform.sh?  If that says OK you are ready to go...


But I just was informed that the project was abandoned, alas archaic, after the fact, good initiative but too late http://www.fogarasi.com/oav/

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Too bad it was abandoned as it could have been a very good open source av.    :(
