NAME
clamdscan - scan files and directories for viruses using Clam AntiVirus Daemon SYNOPSIS
clamdscan [options] [file/directory] DESCRIPTION
clamdscan is a clamd client which may be used as a clamscan replacement. It accepts all the options implemented in clamscan but most of them will be ignored because its scanning abilities only depend on clamd. OPTIONS
-h, --help Display help information and exit. -V, --version Print version number and exit. -v, --verbose Be verbose. --quiet Be quiet - only output error messages. --stdout Write all messages (except for libclamav output) to the standard output (stdout). --config-file=FILE Read clamd settings from FILE. -l FILE, --log=FILE Save the scan report to FILE. -f FILE, --file-list=FILE Scan files listed line by line in FILE. -m, --multiscan In the multiscan mode clamd will attempt to scan the directory contents in parallel using available threads. This option is espe- cially useful on multiprocessor and multi-core systems. If you pass more than one file or directory in the command line, they are put in a queue and sent to clamd individually. This means, that single files are always scanned by a single thread. Similarly, clamdscan will wait for clamd to finish a directory scan (performed in multiscan mode) before sending request to scan another direc- tory. This option can be combined with --fdpass (see below). -z, --allmatch After a match, continue scanning within the file for additional matches. --remove Remove infected files. Be careful. --move=DIRECTORY Move infected files into DIRECTORY. --no-summary Do not display summary at the end of scanning. --reload Request clamd to reload virus database. --fdpass Pass the file descriptor permissions to clamd. This is useful if clamd is running as a different user as it is faster than streaming the file to clamd. Only available if connected to clamd via local(unix) socket. --stream Forces file streaming to clamd. This is generally not needed as clamdscan detects automatically if streaming is required. This option only exists for debugging and testing purposes, in all other cases --fdpass is preferred. EXAMPLES
(0) To scan a one file: clamdscan file (1) To scan a current working directory: clamdscan (2) To scan all files in /home: clamdscan /home (3) To scan a file when clamd is running as a different user: clamdscan --fdpass ~/downloads (4) To scan from standard input: clamdscan - < file_to_scan cat file_to_scan | clamdscan - RETURN CODES
0 : No virus found. 1 : Virus(es) found. 2 : An error occured. CREDITS

NAME
ClamAV::Client - A client class for the ClamAV "clamd" virus scanner daemon VERSION
0.11 SYNOPSIS
Creating a scanner client use ClamAV::Client; # Try using socket options from clamd.conf, or use default socket: my $scanner = ClamAV::Client->new(); # Use a local Unix domain socket: my $scanner = ClamAV::Client->new( socket_name => '/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl' ); # Use a TCP socket: my $scanner = ClamAV::Client->new( socket_host => '127.0.0.1', socket_port => 3310 ); die("ClamAV daemon not alive") if not defined($scanner) or not $scanner->ping(); Daemon maintenance my $version = $scanner->version; # Retrieve the ClamAV version string. $scanner->reload(); # Reload the malware pattern database. $scanner->quit(); # Terminates the ClamAV daemon. $scanner->shutdown(); # Likewise. Path scanning (lazy) # Scan a single file or a whole directory structure, # and stop at the first infected file: my ($path, $result) = $scanner->scan_path($path); my ($path, $result) = $scanner->scan_path( $path, ClamAV::Client::SCAN_MODE_NORMAL ); my ($path, $result) = $scanner->scan_path( $path, ClamAV::Client::SCAN_MODE_RAW ); Path scanning (complete) # Scan a single file or a whole directory structure, # and scan all files without stopping at the first infected one: my %results = $scanner->scan_path_complete($path); while (my ($path, $result) = each %results) { ... } Other scanning methods # Scan a stream, i.e. read from an I/O handle: my $result = $scanner->scan_stream($handle); # Scan a scalar value: my $result = $scanner->scan_scalar($value); DESCRIPTION
ClamAV::Client is a class acting as a client for a ClamAV "clamd" virus scanner daemon. The daemon may run locally or on a remote system as ClamAV::Client can use both Unix domain sockets and TCP/IP sockets. The full functionality of the "clamd" client/server protocol is supported. Constructor The following constructor is provided: new(%options): RETURNS ClamAV::Client Creates a new "ClamAV::Client" object. If no socket options are specified, first the socket options from the local "clamd.conf" configuration file are tried, then the Unix domain socket "/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl" is tried, then finally the TCP/IP socket at 127.0.0.1 on port 3310 is tried. If either Unix domain or TCP/IP socket options are explicitly specified, only these are used. %options is a list of key/value pairs representing any of the following options: socket_name A scalar containing the absolute name of the local Unix domain socket. Defaults to '/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl'. socket_host A scalar containing the name or IP address of the TCP/IP socket. Defaults to '127.0.0.1'. socket_port A scalar containing the port number of the TCP/IP socket. Defaults to 3310. Instance methods The following instance methods are provided: Daemon maintenance ping: RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Returns true ('PONG') if the ClamAV daemon is alive. Throws a ClamAV::Client::Error exception otherwise. version: RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Returns the version string of the ClamAV daemon. reload: RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Instructs the ClamAV daemon to reload its malware database. Returns true if the reloading succeeds, or throws a ClamAV::Client::Error exception otherwise. quit: RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error shutdown: RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Terminates the ClamAV daemon. Returns true if the termination succeeds, or throws a ClamAV::Client::Error exception otherwise. scan_path($path): RETURNS SCALAR, SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error scan_path($path, $scan_mode): RETURNS SCALAR, SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Scans a single file or a whole directory structure, and stops at the first infected file found. The specified path must be absolute. A scan mode may be specified: a mode of ClamAV::Client::SCAN_MODE_NORMAL (which is the default) causes a normal scan ("SCAN") with archive support enabled, a mode of ClamAV::Client::SCAN_MODE_RAW causes a raw scan with archive support disabled. If an infected file is found, returns a list consisting of the path of the file and the name of the malware signature that matched the file. Otherwise, returns the originally specified path and undef. scan_path_complete($path): RETURNS HASH; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Scans a single file or a whole directory structure completely, not stopping at the first infected file found. The specified path must be absolute. Only the normal, non-raw mode is supported for complete scans by ClamAV. Returns a hash with a list of infected files found, with the file paths as the keys and the matched malware signature names as the values. scan_stream($handle): RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Scans a stream, that is, reads from an I/O handle. If the stream is found to be infected, returns the name of the matching malware signature, undef otherwise. scan_scalar($value): RETURNS SCALAR; THROWS ClamAV::Client::Error Scans the value referenced by the given scalarref. If the value is found to be infected, returns the name of the matching malware signature, undef otherwise. SEE ALSO
