Softpedia was informed by GNU/Linux developer and creator of the 4MLinux project, Mr. Zbigniew Konojacki, about the immediate availability for download of the Antivirus Live CD 19.0-0.99.2 distrolette.
The Antivirus Live CD 19.0-0.99.2 release is here based on the recently announced 4MLinux 19.0 Beta operating system, bringing all the new GNU/Linux technologies, and it includes the latest version of the popular, open-source, free, and cross-platform ClamAV (Clam AntiVirus) 0.99.2 antivirus software.
We’ll take this opportunity to remind those behind their Antivirus Live CD reading that, as its name suggests, the project provides a bootable ISO image that acts as an antivirus tool which you can use to clean your PCs of viruses, independent of the operating system installed on the respective computer.
Antivirus Live CD 19.0-0.99.2 is available for download right now via our website, and you can get it as an ISO image that contains all the virus signatures for Clam AntiVirus for an out-of-the-box experience, or a smaller version without the ClamAV virus signatures, perfect for those who don’t have enough bandwidth.
Antivirus Live CD is suitable for deployment on either USB flash drives (recommended) or CD discs. This version is considered stable and usable in production environments, despite the fact that it is based on the Beta release of the upcoming 4MLinux 19.0 GNU/Linux operating system.
Taking about 4MLinux 19.0, the Core and Main editions have alread been seeded to public beta testing, and the final release should hit the streets around the date of September 1, 2016.
