Guides on emulating older applications

ClamAV is an extremely advanced command-line driven antivirus for UNIX based systems. ClamXav is a port for Mac OS X, complete with GUI interface. One of the best antivirus for OS X.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

First download is for Snow Leopard (10.6), second is for Leopard (10.5), whilst the third is for Tiger (10.4). Last two are for Panther and Jaguar (10.3 and 10.2).
Although newer versions of the front end won't work on anything beyond their minimal requirements (obviously), you can actually compile and use a newer version of the Clam scanning engine with the older front ends (helpful for PowerPC users). Further more, their certificates are still updated regularly. Information on properly updating OS X Server's builtin Clam engine can be found here.

Note that the latest version of ClamXav is now proprietary. If you have anything beyond Snow Leopard (10.6), please purchase the latest version here. Thank you.

Is anyone else using v2.7.5 on Snow Leopard? the virus database seems to no longer be updating ... was there perhaps a virus certificate format change or server/host address change?

As suggested above, can the engine still be updated to the latest version?
