The new release, Antivirus Live CD 16.0-0.99, brings support for the recently announced ClamAV 0.99.0, which has all the latest virus definition updates and bugfixes for protecting your computer from malware.

“Antivirus Live CD is an official 4MLinux fork including the ClamAV scanner. It’s designed for users who need a lightweight live CD, which will help them to protect their computers against viruses,” says Zbigniew Konojacki. “The latest version 16.0-0.99 is based on 4MLinux 16.0 and ClamAV 0.99.”
As usual, the Antivirus Live CD project is distributed as two Live ISO images, one that contains the entire ClamAV virus signature database, and another one that doesn’t.
