Scan for viruses using the ClamAV Daemon. More information:

  • Scan a file or directory for vulnerabilities:

clamdscan {{path/to/file_or_directory}}

  • Scan data from stdin:

{{command}} | clamdscan -

  • Scan the current directory and output only infected files:

clamdscan --infected

  • Print the scan report to a log file:

clamdscan --log {{path/to/log_file}}

  • Move infected files to a specific directory:

clamdscan --move {{path/to/quarantine_directory}}

  • Remove infected files:

clamdscan --remove

  • Use multiple threads to scan a directory:

clamdscan --multiscan

  • Pass the file descriptor instead of streaming the file to the daemon:

clamdscan --fdpass
