We have a Linux VM running Xubuntu with ClamAV installed.
We would like to scan files larger than 4Gigs, using the clamscan command preferably. I can use the
--max-scansize=x options perfectly. Looking on the clamscan man page, Clam only lets you set these parameters to less than 4Gig file sizes.
I can also set these to 'unlimited' by using 0, but if the file is larger than 4Gigs it will still have no data scanned.
----------- SCAN SUMMARY ----------- Known viruses: 4297615 Engine version: 0.98.7 Scanned directories: 0 Scanned files: 1 Infected files: 0 Data scanned: 0.00 MB Data read: 58082.25 MB (ratio 0.00:1) Time: 12.325 sec (0 m 12 s)
As you can see we are trying to scan some pretty large files ±75Gigs.
Is there a way to use clamscan to virus scan files larger than 4Gigs? Or is there another command line tool to achieve what I am after.
