phpMussel v1.9.1 releases: PHP-based anti-virus anti-trojan anti-malware solution

What is phpMussel?

An ideal solution for shared hosting environments, where it’s often not possible to utilize or install conventional anti-virus protection solutions, phpMussel is a PHP script designed to detect trojans, viruses, malware and other threats within files uploaded to your system wherever the script is hooked, based on the signatures of ClamAV and others. For information regarding HOW TO INSTALL {2A+2B} and HOW TO USE {3A+3B} phpMussel, please refer either to the Wiki or to the documentation included within the “_docs” directory of this repository.
