ClamAV is a very cool open source anti-virus program that has secretly been powering many anti-virus appliances. Perhaps one of the largest implementers of the ClamAV powered appliance is Barracuda Networks (http://www.barracudanetworks.com/ns/products/spam_overview.php.
Not to long ago I was contacted by a “local” Linux User Group, specifically the Provo Linux User Group (PLUG), to put together a presentation on the GoOSe project.
Unfortunately it appears more and more that I, and most of the GoOSe project people in Utah, won’t be able to attend. In scratching our heads over the process we think we have an interesting plan: We are thinking about setting up a virtual presentation.
As I travel frequently I thought that it might be a good idea for me to perform some sort of public service that doesn’t involve talking about the TSA. So I am going to start performing a little survey of computer systems at hotels and see if they happen to try and infect my poor little thumb drive.
Recently the Ascendos reached out to the GoOSe project. It started with a very polite email to the GoOSe mailing list from Andrew Cutler. Shortly afterwards, over the course of a couple weeks, a few people stopped in to #gooseproject and expressed interest in possibly merging the two projects.
The GoOSe project has promised a response and it is the main topic of conversation for this evenings meeting.
