1) Using samba-vscan with ClamAV......
~ a) Currently, I believe clamd needs to be setup to run as root.
Otherwise, clamd needs access to the share directories for samba. The
simplest way I've found is to give clamd root user in the config file.
~ b) Samba-Vscan uses /var/run/clamav/clamav.sock to perform the scan
another change in the config files for ClamAV to set it to use the file
socket instead of the localhost socket.
~ c) The documentation says you have to compile Samba-Vscan against
the Samba source. I didn't have any problems using the binary
distributions at http://crash.fce.vutbr.cz/crash-hat/1/samba-vscan/ ...
~ d) You will also need a test file.. Best gotten here
~ e) Setup only 1 share at a time with the VFS module at a time and
I'm hoping someday someone will rewrite the current samba-vscan-clamav
engine to use clamav's newer features and security measures. Until
then, I don't mind running clamd as root.
