      How do you run ClamAV in terminal?


      To do this on Ubuntu, you can open a terminal and insert “sudo apt-get installclamav” and press enter. You may also build ClamAV from sources to benefit from better scanning performance. To update the signatures, you type “sudo freshclam” on a terminal session and press enter. Now we are ready to scan our system.

      ClamAV is an open-source anti-virus engine that is built to detect viruses, trojans, malware and other threats. It supports multiple file formats (documents, executables or archives), utilizes multi-thread scanner features and receives updates for its signature database at least 3-4 times a day.
