I assume a few people on this list use ClamAV.  Have you noticed that
it has become next to useless for detecting viruses?  The latest rash of
fax spams that contain EXEs inside ZIPs just seem to sail past ClamAV.
We always hold EXEs and EXEs inside ZIPs, so our clients are safe, but
really ClamAV is not doing its job.

Are others noticing it?  And if you use commercial AV software, does it
seem to do a better job than ClamAV?
