Open Source Command Line AV


Hi, I am looking for free open source Command Line Antivirus tools such as ClamAV. What free Command Line AV tools are out there?

Also, is it possible for ClamAV to return a more detail report similar to Symantec (virus name, virus id, virus type, etc.)?

That is basically

What this site is. If you upload a sample it will be scanned.
Also check out jotti and virustotal.

Basically what we did when we setup OC was to go and aquire every AV we could find and see if they had a command line version. As far as opensource i'm not aware of any besides clamAV.

good luck,
