HAVP Logo Small but important: a missing dot in one of the entries on the whitelist provided with the Http Anti-Virus Proxy (HAVP) allows attackers to inject malware. The whitelist at /etc/havp/whitelist includes the entry **clamav-* . However, a missing dot in front of sourceforge unfortunately causes HAVP to disregard content from other domains that end in, for example

HAVP update 0.92a has the single purpose of adding a dot to the whitelist entry: **clamav-*.

The feature article from The H Security entitled "Using the HAVP anti-virus proxy to protect from web attacks" demonstrates how to install and configure HAVP in only a few steps.
