For OS X 10.4 and 10.5 (Tiger and Leopard)

ClamXav 1.1.1 with ClamAV 0.95.1 backend – 14th May 2009

Download for 10.4 Tiger and 10.5 Leopard (preferred) | mirror (26.8 MB)

This version of ClamXav is fully Universal which means that it will run on 10.4 and 10.5 on both PPC and Intel Macs.

Available in Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish and Taiwanese.

Mac OS X Server: ClamXav will work on OS X 10.4 and 10.5 Server using the ClamAV engine as installed by Apple.
I know Apple lag behind slightly with their ClamAV engine distributions, but please do not install my bundled engine as I don’t know what repurcussions that will have. This document(not written by me) explains how to update your ClamAV engine installation on Server. It’s also worth noting that for OS X Server, updating of virus definitions has been disabled in both ClamXav and ClamXav Sentry as OS X Server takes care of this itself (settings via “Server”) and is much more efficient at it.

For OS X 10.3 (Panther)

ClamXav 1.1.1 with ClamAV 0.94.2 backend – 27th November 2008

Download for 10.3 Panther | mirror (22.9 MB) – Unsupported

Please note: My only computer capable of running OS X 10.3 has finally given up and refuses to power on. This means that I am unable to build and test the scanning engine for 10.3. Version 1.1.1 is still the current and most recent version of ClamXav, however, this is the last release I will make for 10.3 as the bundled engine is now obsolete and I have no way of updating it. Sorry.


Older version for OS X 10.2

Download ClamXav for OS X 10.2 (Jaguar) – version 0.8.7c (2.8 MB) – inlcudes engine version 0.75-1
Please note: This is the final version which will work with OS X 10.2. Any problems encountered with 0.8.7c were fixed in later releases and this version is now unsupported


Miscellaneous Extras

Engine Remover – unzip this and double click the clamavEngineREMOVER.command. After that, drag the ClamXav application to the trash. The uninstaller is also included on the ClamXav disk image.

These file is a .zip archive and was created with the “create archive” command in Mac OS X 10.4. To extract it, you can either use OS X’s built-in support or use a 3rd party utility such as the free Stuffit Expander which is available from Allume Systems

If you’re using Stuffit Expander and are having trouble extracting the archives, please ensure you have the most up-to-date version.


MD5 Checksums

MD5 checksums can be used to check the authenticity of files you download from this website. To use them, open the Terminal (which is inside the Utilities folder), type md5 followed by a space and then drag into the terminal window the file you downloaded, hit return and verify that the number returned to you is the same as the one here.

Note, this will not work if you decompress the archive first. You have to do it on the exact file you download from this website.

md5 for ClamXav_1.1.1_Universal_e951.dmg is b96c06ecd7a42a26d6089e252370ed8e
md5 for ClamXav_1.1.1_Panther_e942.dmg is e89a2e4dbfad5df7e9f0cb4b07c3c430
