Downtime and relocation notice 2008 June 24
The site ( that hosts this project's web page ( was destroyed by error in behalf of a repair technitian attempting to fix another site physically adjacent to this site on 2008 June 12. This site was incorrectly identified as the site needing repair by the technitian and all of its data was completely erased by the "repair" which involved an attempt to install a different operating system (Windows 2000).

Corrective actions are pending on the technitian as of this posting.

We are currently regenerating our source and data packages and using and as a temporary distribution point. We have not made a decision at this point as to whether to keep this temporary distribution set up or to recreate the set up on When a decision is made it will be posted here.

GPL and OpenSSL branches, which to pick!

The difference between the two branches is that the OpenSSL Debian branch contains some Debian-specific code and it is OpenSSL licensed in accordance with Debian's legal dept in order for them to release AVScan as a Debian package. The GPL branch contains the more "general" code and nothing platform-specific.

If you/your company do not have licensing issues and you do not use Debian, then you should get the GPL branch version. Otherwise get the OpenSSL Debian one if you use Debian.
