Open-Source Antivirus Project

dreamlost88dreamlost88 Member Posts: 1

I'm looking for C/C++ programmers interested in developing an opensource antivirus engine.

Done so far: basic virus detection using Aho-Corasick for string searching, clam database, recursive directory searching.

If you are interested please send me an email at:

Thank you,
Have a nice day!

    It will be terribly easy to write a virus which effectively avoids an open-source anti-virus program. The virus kids have all the source there in their face.

    They could even write a virus that looks like the anti-virus program itself and takes over the computer.

    Open source seems like a bad idea in this case.
