Requesting testers for virus scanning plugin

Postby ndouglas » Fri Nov 25, 2011 11:17 am

Dear OJS users,

I have developed a plugin which makes use of ClamAV to scan submitted documents for viruses. If anyone interested could help test it for me, I would be very grateful.

You can download it from https://github.com/ned14/ClamAV-Plugin- ... ball/v1.00. It's open source (BSD licence) so ought to continue existing into the future.

Please read the README as it contains important configuration instructions.

My thanks to the World Economics Association (http://www.worldeconomicsassociation.org/) for sponsoring this work.

My thanks also to the PKP for volunteering a temporary instance of ClamAV to test against for those people who are hosted by the PKP. Anyone else will need to configure their own Clamd (this is very easy on any modern Unix).

In case you need a test virus file to test it works, you can find one at http://www.eicar.org/86-0-Intended-use.html.

My thanks in advance,
