pfsense + havp + clamav

I know I write a lot about my pfsense router, but one can’t write enough about it given the rock-solid performance and awesome feature set.

Yesterday and this morning I installed a new package on the router which implements a transparent proxy to scan downloaded files for viruses.

Remember this is sitting on the router, which means that every single device in my home is automatically protected. Each and every request is now scanned using the Clam Antivirus scanner, no matter whether those requests come from Macs, PCs or handheld devices. The package is configured to download new virus/malware signatures every few hours. That, combined with AV software on individual machines leaves a warm and fuzzy feeling.
