A Python interface to ClamAV.

Project Description

ClamAV for Python lets you use the libclamav scanning engine from Python.


pyClamAV was abandoned in favor of pyClamd, which never worked for me well under Windows. As a result, I decided to roll my own bindings.


  • CFFI
  • libclamav


There isn’t any documentation right now, but the source shouldn’t be difficult to read. Also check out, a simple example of how to use the engine.
