Special Information

The OpenDiagnostics Live CD (formerly know as the ClamAV Live CD) was created a few years back when this guy named Brandon Perry thought it would be awesome to be able to scan computers on the fly regardless of the OS, and to be able to do it over SSH would be even better!

So, after a weekend of hacking, a small 160MB iso image with a small version of Ubuntu and ClamAV, with a few other utilities for disk/file repair came to be. Sucking up to his boss, he even threw a big Computer Care of Arlington logo on the background of the menu for customers to see.

After a few more weekends of hacking up scripts and figuring out how to make the CD as small as possible, Brandon Perry released the CD on his website.
