About this Repo

This Git repo of the clamd antivirus server that listen to TCP socket for commands.

Why we needed this

This gives us the ability to scan remotely files for known various and sanitize our S3 bucket.


This is a clamav antivirus running inside a container. This is done in order to scale easily our scanning capacity.

The container is managed by a python supervisor that starts 2 main programs, the freshclam and clamd. The first will update the clam database every FRESHCLAM_UPDATE (default 2) times a day, and the second will start clamav process. Everytime freshclam performs an update it will notify clam of the update to reload the database.

Sending commands.
