Clamd is a python interface to Clamd (Clamav daemon).

Project Description

clamd

About

clamd is a portable Python module to use the ClamAV anti-virus engine on Windows, Linux, MacOSX and other platforms. It requires a running instance of the clamd daemon.

This is a fork of pyClamd v0.2.0 created by Philippe Lagadec and published on his website: http://www.decalage.info/en/python/pyclamd which in turn is a slightly improved version of pyClamd v0.1.1 created by Alexandre Norman and published on his website: http://xael.org/norman/python/pyclamd/

Usage

To use with a unix socket:

>>> import clamd
>>> cd = clamd.ClamdUnixSocket()
>>> cd.ping()
'PONG'
>>> cd.version()                             # doctest: +ELLIPSIS
'ClamAV ...
>>> cd.reload()
'RELOADING'

To scan a file:

>>> open('/tmp/EICAR','wb').write(clamd.EICAR)
>>> cd.scan('/tmp/EICAR')
{'/tmp/EICAR': ('FOUND', 'Eicar-Test-Signature')}

To scan a stream:

>>> from six import BytesIO
>>> cd.instream(BytesIO(clamd.EICAR))
{'stream': ('FOUND', 'Eicar-Test-Signature')}
