Yes, clam wastes a lot of RAM. Also, computer viruses are dead as floppy disks (that used to spread viruses) are dead.

bash hst-install.sh --apache no --multiphp yes --vsftpd no --named no --dovecot no --clamav no --spamassassin no --interactive no --force

[config request] --nginx no

Not planned…

yes, clamav takes a lot of ram but i think anti virus must be run at the end user level not server level.

What alternative anti-malware kit could be recommended here, or just use none?

In my opinion, it is Linux and none is really needed. Malware is mainly for Windows OS. and even then, Windows is still not secure.
