AVAST! online scan ? or not ?
« on: July 04, 2003, 01:51:13 PM »
Hi,

Are there thoughts to make a online scan (on this website) using the superb AVAST4.0 engine ?

This would be a great tool and option to promote and demonstrate the greatness of this product. If it gets well known in the respected security forums and internet community.

something similar as Panda's en Trend's, Symantec's, etc...

I guess with your programming skills and experience, technicaly it could be done.

It's on the way. ;)

We're waiting for the linux version to be ready as all our web servers run linux!

Awesome! But PLEEEEEASE make sure we can select a folder/file/drive to scan, not scan everything.... very useful in scanning virus collections.
