[ITP] clamav-0.75.1-1 - A GPL virus scanner


I want to contribute and maintain clamav, the GNU virus scanner.

It builds OOTB without libmilter support. exim/fetchmail integration pending. All tests are passing.
There are several windows UI's, the one in contrib/Windows doesn't build with cygwin/mingw so far, but I will try to fix this upstream with the next update.
freshclam, the automatic updater is called on, but no cronjob is added.
They update the engine quite often (weekly - two weeks), so it's good to have a simple binary install, pffh. The database is updated more often (daily to 3 times a day).
But it doesn't find the new SDBot.UJ sniffer yet. Which free engine does?
