slax live cd antivirus


Hello, recently I had some jobs cleaning viruses from many windows boxes, I was using a cd tool known as Hiren's BootCD, but at the time to scan ntfs drives, antivirus tools like f-prot and mcafee from the Hiren's BootCD shows me error messages, I suppose that the reason is that the NTFS driver is not correctly loaded, Hiren's Boot uses NTFS4DOS, NTFS Professional from Winternals.com.
OK. searching for internet I found some projects like LinuxDefender, Chronomium and AVAST that have incorporated antivirus for windows, with full ntfs write support using captive driver. I don't know if those projects are supported yet, but I would like to create a slax live cd with antivirus for windows, and ntfs write support. I would like to know which antivirus to use, and how I can build a module to insert in a live cd. Plz excuse me, maybe my english is not so good.

whichever works best for you...

i'd recommend clamav but it sounds like you want something which will not only tell you about the viruses but also give you a chance to try and clean them... so one of the many proprietary solutions out there is probably what you want instead... considering you are going to use this cd for jobs, you are probably going to need to buy an adequate license...

for slax, look here: http://slax.linux-live.org/doc_modules.php

Smile ClamAV

Thanx for the reply.
You are right, just I don't want a antivirus that only tells me, I would like to have something like sdat's updates from virusscan that works on windoze konsoles it detects viruses and clean them too.
It would be good to have a slax tool that desinfects windoze viruses.
I am trying to build a captive module to insert into my new slax livecd, after that I want to insert a module antivirus.
Could be too f-prot? Another?

Cool F-Prot

Hi

F-Prot is free only for personal use. If you want to use it for commercial purposes, you have to buy the license.

For making a SLAX module, first you have to make a normal Slackware .tgz installable package with makepkg:

cd /your/source/dir
./configure
make
make install DESTDIR=/your/packaging/dir

cd /your/packaging/dir
makepkg yourpackage-0.0.0-i386-1xxx.tgz

Then you convert that package to a slack module using the tgz2mo tool provided by SLAX. By the way you can also convert a module to a .tgz package using mo2tgz.

May the Force be with you!

i will translate what you wrote in order to comply with the LQ rules (which require everything to be in english so as that it can be modded):

And because of marvellously pleasant I am, all non-english has been removed. Do not do this again.

Unhappy sorry

Sorry for the non-english.

(fortunately English is still easy to understand even whitout translation -as far as I know many people in the Middle East think all Western languages are alike- hope there isn't any Sanskrit speakers out there; i heard that language is very difficult to translate)

Now, in almost all of South America (and as far as I know part of the Middle East - I know, having lived in both) there's 80% of piracy. It's not my case (as I paid my Windows licenses having bought computers with preloaded Windows and other propietary software); and I strongly discourage piracy (why using M$ 0ffic3 when OpenOffice.org can do the same for free -and in my case performing better). Sadly, most people just prefer using closed-source piracy, even with the risk of viruses -and even being illegal. Even with bad performances.

NOTE: this is definitely NOT the type of advice that should be disseminated here at LQ... unlicensed use of software is illegal wether or not the relevant authorities find out... i assume you already know that, which might explain why you didn't write this part of your post in english originally...

I agree that my advice wasn't moral. Sorry for that.

Probably none of heraklez's customers have a licensed copy of Windows. Probably all of them have Windows at home. (blame the physics professor that asks all the homework in .doc format knowing very well that none of his pupils have a licensed Windows, and not caring about finding a legal way -e.g. OpenOffice.org). The situation in e.g. South America is very different than that in Europe or the U.S and that's why I didn't translate something that is pretty useless outside the big Third World.

Sorry.

P.S. I think the above was like a "translation" although written in English. Sorry again, and long live to Slackware.
