Clam Sentinel

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Clam Sentinel

Clam Sentinel was added to the db @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2289

Any ClamWin user willing to test/vouch for it?

On the extract instructions, we're linking to the ClamWin Portable entry, but I'm guessing this requires following the official program instructions. Has anyone tested this?

I have. Current linking configuration appears optimal to me, since you can use files from both the official ClamWin release or the various portable implementations with a portable Sentinel -- but in any case, and resulting from its modular nature, you'll have to pay attention to the instructions referenced in ClamWin's entry... 8)

FYI, Robert Scroggins, one of the persons in charge of Clam Sentinel at SF.net, wrote this back in 2016:

The Clam Sentinel heuristics are still good at detecting Windows executable malware, but they do not detect non-Windows malware like JavaScript, Word macros, etc.. More and more malware is using non-Windows executables. Clam Sentinel relies upon ClamWin for non-Windows executable malware detection. I am still using Clam Sentinel and ClamWin, but I also use Forticlient free antivirus and Zemana Free antimalware.
Also, http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net/ is offline, but https://sourceforge.net/projects/clamsentinel/ shows fairly recent activity.

Along with the Chromium post, I've added a note to the entry about it's outdated status, as well as added an alternative program (ClamWin).
