Automated GUI program using ClamWin as a Memory Scanner

FYI: This an continuation from https://portableapps.com/node/5449#comment-66537
You might want to read what is there first.

A bunch of people here came up with the great idea of using a .bat file to run a ClamWin memory scan every time that you plugged in your drive. But I don't like the ugly DOS prompt. Blum Biggrin So I wrote a nice little program, that will start a scan, but only show a blinking tray icon. If ClamWin finds anything, a window will pop up and tell you what it found. You then can save the report off as a file.

And yes it has a GUI to set the settings. It will pop up the first time you run the program, and you can reset the settings with the tray icon menu, or delete the .ini file. If you delete the .ini, the prefs GUI pops up again next time you run.

New for Version 2.2!

1) Detects and launches ClamWin Portable Database Updater if in same folder
2) Option to AutoLaunch multiple apps
3) Option to scan whole computer with ClamWin if a Virus is found in memory.
4) Option to unload infected modules in memory
5) Other misc. tweaks and bug fixes

Here are some screenshots.

And here is the .zip file containing the program and the source. If anyone finds a bug in the program, just tell me and I'll try to fix them.

It's working good so far. On a local drive, that is. I don't know whether or not the program can handle it, but here's a nicer ClamWin logo.

Nice, I might very well add

Nice, I might very well add this to the standard apps I'll launch before I launch the PA menu.

One suggestion though, You might want to just ask for a memory scan without references to USB portable drive... Just keep it a bit more generic Smile

Thats Your way of being lazy? Great!

Very promising, found no problem with 2.1 till now.Keep on being lazy Biggrin

EDIT: tested it on my office PC(restricted account,domain user)
some issues:
When I set the autorun path to AutoMemScan.exe, plugin anew, there´s a popup " access denied to drive X" (=portable drive), other apps like convey work with autorun.inf
Second:When I deny a memoryscan: app closes and doesn´t ask for launching the next app

EDIt: @ my first EDIT comment:this is very strange ... when using the normal long path neither Your app nor ClamwinPortable starts. The windows autorun pop appears, I choose "run the portable app" , then a pop up says Drive x : access denied ( as stated above), but when I use the shortpath like Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE it works like charm?
Any ideas ? issue with handling the paths in clamwin?

Same Problem

I am having this same problem. Whenever I try to run the program from the autorun menu it says access denied. Is this because I do not have the program in the root of the drive? I've tried both the short and long path method in the inf file, but no luck. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Here is my inf file.

[autorun]
OPEN=Programs\Installed Programs\Security\Autorun ClamWin\AutoMemScan 2.2.exe
ICON=Programs\Installed Programs\Security\Autorun ClamWin\AutoMemScan 2.2.exe
ACTION = Scan Memory

Thanks

just use the original autorun.inf...

put automemscan into thePortableappsFolder and edit autorun.inf with notepad like that:
[Autorun]
Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE
Action=Start PortableApps.com (or a Name of Your choice)
Icon=..\..\..\xy.ico (=your icon path)
Label=xy (=your label)

Then Your Memscan will be found: shortpath overrides a possible typing error within the .exe name

EDIT: For Your purpose

[autorun]
OPEN=Programs\Installed Programs\Security\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE
ICON=Programs\Installed Programs\Security\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE
ACTION =Start Scan Memory
Label=MyDrivexy

I had the same problem

and I think I solved it be removing the spaces in the autorun.inf and the Appname.

Exactly

That is exactly what I figured out as well, although you beat me to the punch. You have to remove all the spaces in the paths. Otherwise you get the error message. I've also discovered that underscores are invalid also. I think the writer of this program should remove the spaces from the file name in order to make it easier for an ordinary user to create the inf file. This could also be part of the GUI in a future version.

Another idea I though of for a future version is to display results if an infected file/process is found. And then to have the option to kill that process on a file by file basis. In other words, if 5 viruses are found you have the option to kill each individual process associated with the virus. I don't know if this is feasible, but it would not automatically kill processes that are essential to the running of the computer.

I have found a virus running this program, so I don't know exactly what happens if one is found, maybe this could be incorporated into a future version.

text fixes

(Using so lines aren't as long (no wrapping))

Fix line 133

Gui, Add, Text, x16 y10 w390 h50 , A virus was detected running in the system's memory. Your portable drive may be infected! A full scan of your portable drive and system is recommended.

Make line 130 and 133 consistent. Use either "in system memory" or "in your system's memory" not "in systems memory". Check line 88 too (drop "the"). Line 59 too. Check line 29...you use "system memory" everywhere except this line where you say "this computer's memory". Pick one and stick with it

Virus should be lowercase in the middle of sentences.

Fix spelling/capitalization on line 175

msgbox,,About AutoMemScan Version 2.1, AutoMemScan is a small automated GUI frontend for the ClamAV virus scanning engine.`nIt is designed to work with the www.PortableApps.com ClamWin Portable package.`n`nNeither AutoMemScan or ClamAV is responsible for any loss of data`nor other damages caused by malware (detected and undetected) and program`nmalfunctions to your computer.`n`nVirus scanners may not be able to detect all known viruses.`nIt is recommended that you take additional security precautions when`nusing a portable drive on an unknown computer.`n`nCreated by: BluePlanet Studios 2008

Is the program named "Auto Memory Scan" or "AutoMemoryScan"? Both are used thoughout the program. Pick one and stick with it.

The PortableApps logo is now trademarked. You need to get John Haller's permission to use it for the program icon.

Executable has a space between the one and the file extension. Change "AutoMemScan 2.1 .exe" to "AutoMemScan 2.1.exe". Same goes for the .ahk source file.

Picky Picky Picky

I'm a Mechanical Engineer and programing is a hobby. I'm not a English or a grammar teacher, you cant expect me to be perfect. Blum Hovever since you pointed them out, I'll fix them. I guess I'll make a new icon too while I'm at it.

The reason It dosent launch your apps when you hit "no" on the scan message box is because that causes the program to quit. I'll change the way it launches the programs in the next version so that it will still launch them. I've also added a new options GUI so you can autolaunch multiple apps. (as many as you want!)

I'll see if I get the new version done today, else I'll post it tomorow.

No need to apologize neither to bother...

he´s offered You some help. So calm down. And ok, my little statement on the way Your app launches others wasn´t a question , merely a request.. Biggrin
Be sure that when everything will be done there will be a final request for a .paf version with installer Wink
On behalf of the icon issue, perhaps NeoRame could assist in making a new one.Won´t You, NeoR..? Wink
For my humble part Pardon , I could offer You a German translation of the GUI, at least when it´s final. I´ll post the strings here when it´s done..:) Good work!

Ok i found few bugs:

1. on my first start where i pressed the edit auto launch button the program chrashed.
2. on my next try´s when ipressed the auto launch button my system and the app slows down
3. i can only edit the settings when the app scan the memory. if the scan complete all windows of AMS2.2 closed

and now my questions:
where are the option to set as default that the app scan the whole computer with ClamWin if a Virus is found in memory?
and wher e ican find the option for Virus Database Updater?

regards
NeoRame

can you add a localize option for more languages???

freshclam.conf

Not sure if this was addressed in version 2.2, but for some clarification, does version 2.2 already have a freshclam.conf file for updating the virus defenition database? If not you need to create one as described here:
https://portableapps.com/node/5449#comment-35278
and ensure it is in the proper freshclam directory, I believe it's PortableApps\ClamWinPortable\App\clamwin\bin\freshclam.conf.

Or it could be the executable filename, there's a space in it.

That might explain the crash on launch. Sorry if I've only added to the confusion.

Have an Awesome Day!

Seems to work great for me....

just one question. The clamwin updater thing.. what does it mean "detects the clamwin updater if it is in the same folder" which folder Automemscan2_2 or portableapps/clamwin ?
EDIT: the ability to change locale.. good idea, as I stated above, I could do a German translation .

No, AMS dosen't update definitions by itself... yet

If you put it in the same folder as ClamWinPortableDBUpdate.exe found at http://www.clamup.co.nr/ (It's been discussed in this forum before) It will launch that program and update the database. I have been planning to add in my own updater for a while now, just haven't gotten around to it.

Also the "option to scan the whole computer" is on a button of the virus found GUI, not in the options screen. And all it does is launch ClamWinPortable. I found that for the whole computer the actual ClamWin does better than my app. I could however add that option back in though, if enough people asked for it. Sorry about the confusion on that. Sad

I found and need to fix the bug on the options screen, where AMS crashes when it finishes scanning while the GUI is open. Sad However I cant get it to crash or slow down on the AutoLaunch option.

Going to add a settings button on the first message box, to allow for changing the settings without scanning.

I'm going to wait to attempt to add multi-language support until after I get the program final.

Yep, it works!

Works well with dbupdate, just like you said.

For what it's worth, I did rename the file, and I'm still starting it from a .bat file, just becuase that's what I prefer. Here's the contents of my relevant files:

Autorun.inf:
[Autorun]
UseAutoPlay=1
Icon=PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
Label=PortableApps

Autorun.bat:
@echo off
cd\
start \PortableApps\ClamWinPortableDBUpdate\AutoMemScan2_2.exe
exit

Works like a charm! Thanks!

Have an Awesome Day!

Glad to hear you like it!

For the next version I'm going to add in it's own database updater, but I'll still leave the option to use the ClamWinPortableBDUpdate.exe because it is probably nicer than anything I can make. Smile I originally thought of putting the entire program into mine, it's written in the same language as my program, and under the GPL. But I don't like using other peoples work. (I feel like I'm stealing when I use someones code, even when I give them credit for it)

If you have any more suggestions of features to add please tell me, and I'll see if I can add them in. Otherwise I think after I get rid of the bugs in this version,and add the stuff that I've already mentioned, I'll make a final version and start working on a multi-language option.

Http proxy support

I would add http proxy support if you can. I need to use a proxy gateway at work to update. This is a problem I have with the DBUpdate program.

I can try...

I'll see what I can do... Never tried programming using a proxy to connect to the web.

EDIT: I think I'll be able to add proxy support through cURL or libcURL. Smile It will be just a matter if I can figure out the correct command lines to send to it. http://curl.haxx.se/ cURL is open source

If I am able to use cURL you will be able to enter a proxy and port, and optionally a password and username if your proxy requires one.

See my comment there. I don't program in nsis, but I could create a program for you.

A few different ones...

I mainly use java when I program, but for my little programs I've been posting here I've been using AutoHotKey. It's a derivative of AutoIt but has more options and features (IMHO). Takes less time than java, is easier, and doesn't need java to be installed on the machine it is run on. Never have really liked using nsis, so I don't have much experience with it. I can also program in Visual Basic.net, and a bit of C. I'm just lazy usually, and tend to use the scripting languages (AHK & AutoIt) when I can.

Suggestion.-

In some computers (like my own) I press "no" when the app ask me to scan for viruses (My computer have already some up-to-date antiviruses runing) then its stop working...

My suggestion is to change the code a little and if I press "no" also launch the next application, just like when it finish cleaning.

Also, if the App can remember those computers where I pressed "no" and skip the question would be very good... Wink

Anyway, great App.

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

ClamWin detects AutoMemScan command

Has anyone else scanned their USB drive after installing AutoMemScan and found that it now reports the Autorun.inf file as "suspect"? It even "removed" it in one instance! If I remove the line

Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE

it passes the scan.

Any solutions? Thanks.

PS: Been having much trouble getting ClamWinPortable to update (from within!) and am now looking forward to trying ClamWinPortableDBUpdate. Hope it works!

portapppaul,

portapppaul,

I am currently not able to get a copy of the file, the stupid web site will not start the download Smile

Upload the file to our two standard testing sites;
VirusTotal:
http://www.virustotal.com/en/indexx.html

and

Jotti:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

and let the author of the program know the results so he may investigate.

If only ClamAV/Win is detecting it it is possible it is a false positive and he could contact them about it.

Since this is not an Official PortableApps.com product I cannot give you an assurance that it is in fact safe.
However it is not uncommon for virus detectors to have questions about home made applications depending on the methods used to create them, and Clam does have a high false positive rate in these cases.

Tim

Before anyone comments that it is strange that ClamWin is having a problem with the program that launched ClamWin, no, it is not. The app is not part of ClamWin and therefore it is NOT like ClamWin is detecting itself Blum

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

clamwinscan on automemscan with most recent database

so if your autorun isn´t altered by a real trojan the virus alert should be wrong.

with clamwin you often get virus alerts on scanning autoit/autohotkey apps
eg xenon file manager posted here and others
procedure as Tim posted makes a real virus alert true and discards the wrong ones

btw I use the clamup for a longtime and it works without complaint when you have direct internet access, proxy doesn´t work

scan of autorun.inf with following lines

[Autorun]
Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE
Action=Start PortableApps.com
Icon=PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\data\screwed.ico
Label=ScrewedPortable

ClamWin False Positive Solved

Thanks for posting your Autorun.inf contents. It solved my problem. I had mistakenly ADDED the line

Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE

to the default PA Autorun.inf instead of REPLACING the default 'Open=' line for PortableApps. Funny how the double 'Open=' lines causes ClamWin to list it as "suspect". I *knew* it was a false positive as we're talking about a simple 4-5 line text file which anyone could create with Notepad... and I did!

Cheers! Now it's on to trying to solve getting the portable ClamWin to update. (Details on the ClamWinPortable Forum).

BTW, I should give full credit here to AutoMemScan which detected no less than NINE viruses in memory on a friend's PC. It works as advertised!!

divshare no longer have free download for Asia region

Hi BluePlanet,

I would like to download the file from your link "http://www.divshare.com/download/3907829-e28"

But it shows "This file is not available to free users in China and Southeast Asia. To download it and any other DivShare file, sign up for a DivShare Personal account for just $9 / year!"

Can you upload the file to another space for me to download.

Thanks,

Does anyone have any idea where I can find the download of the program. I would like to have my drive do the auto scan, but I can't seem to find the right link.

Doesn't Auto Run

I installed the program as instructed. When I tested, it doesn't auto run. I removed and installed flash drive and nothing happens. It does work however when I double click the .exe file. This is how the Automemscan is listed:

[RunPrefs]
AntiVirus=\PortableApps\ClamWinPortable
ShowMsgBox=1
TrayIcon=1
NotifyClean=1
PlayClean=1
PlayAlarm=1
UnloadInfected=0
[AutoLaunch]
AutoLaunch=0
Ask=0

Everything is placed in the main flash drive directory. Any ideas?

Thanks!

paths correct?autorun.inf changed?

Path should be

your drive:\PortableApps\Automemscan2_2\Automemscan 2.2.exe
your drive:\PortableApps\ClamwinPortable\ClamwinPortable.exe

autorun.inf should be edited:

...
Open=PortableApps\AUTOME~1\AUTOME~1.EXE
...

on First start you can edit the path to clamwin, if you have both app folders on the root directory of the drive

Editing the "open line" of the autorun is necessary, just copy it over the existing open=... line after having made a backup of the original

Read the whole post here (at least some of my last comments here)

Progress window, automatic scanning after user-set interval

Hi, thanks for updating the AutoMemScan, I use it regularly with pleasure.

Could you please upload every new build as an executable file as well? I do not know how to compile the source code.

Two feature requests:
- It would be great to be able to make show up a progress window from the tray icon. So one can see the progress, and which file is scanned, and what has been found yet.
- And the possibility to let AutoMemScan run in the background, and do a memscan at a user-set interval. This as an alternative to on-access scanning, which is not really possible in portable apps.

Does this require AutoRun to

Does this require AutoRun to work? If so, then a number of today's viruses could probably neutralize the script and infect the drive before it gets a chance to scan.
