Update or install this Anti-Virus utility in Tiger Mac OS X 10.4 - an outdated release already comes supplied with Server edition of Tiger and it needs this update!

1st dL the March 2010 database-only, highest that can be plugged cleanly into Tiger, over 750000 "known viruses" compare to as few as 29000 if you don't update. And, I've built a software backup volume of mine which causes an un-updated Tiger clamscan to system freeze under Kernel Panic every time. This database plugin also fixes clamscan so that particular volume will report a brief engine error rather than KP. Installation requires Terminal knowledge, instructions are included in the dL.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

PPC and Intel Macs
Intended for Tiger OS X only, especially Server but could be used on Client (perhaps in limited ways until it all gets ironed out)

Seems like the latest ClamAV may perhaps still work in PowerPC Mac OS X. Official website:

Instructions for Mac OS X from the downloads section are as follows:

ClamAV may be compiled and used on macOS natively (via the source download above), or downloaded and installed via the MacPorts package system or the HomeBrew package system.

Additionally, Fink also provides a ClamAV package.

Since they mention HomeBrew, I wonder if TigerBrew would also allow it to work under PPC Tiger. As for PPC Leopard, MacPorts should do the trick. Not sure about Fink's status regarding PPC, though.

Tiger is my favorite, the Mac's "XP" analogy.
Some of my notes on Tiger Security in this link:

I'll assemble more downloads here which introduce the updated engine for Tigers missing it, & possibly Client OS but without the on-the-fly daemon feature.
