# Comment or remove the line below.
Example

# Uncomment this option to enable logging.
# LogFile must be writable for the user running daemon.
# A full path is required.
# Default: disabled
#LogFile /var/log/clamd.scan

# By default the log file is locked for writing – the lock protects against
# running clamd multiple times (if want to run another clamd, please
# copy the configuration file, change the LogFile variable, and run
# the daemon with –config-file option).
# This option disables log file locking.
# Default: no
#LogFileUnlock yes

# Maximum size of the log file.
# Value of 0 disables the limit.
# You may use ‘M’ or ‘m’ for megabytes (1M = 1m = 1048576 bytes)
# and ‘K’ or ‘k’ for kilobytes (1K = 1k = 1024 bytes). To specify the size
# in bytes just don’t use modifiers. If LogFileMaxSize is enabled, log
# rotation (the LogRotate option) will always be enabled.
# Default: 1M
#LogFileMaxSize 2M

# Log time with each message.
# Default: no
#LogTime yes

# Also log clean files. Useful in debugging but drastically increases the
# log size.
# Default: no
#LogClean yes

# Default: no
#TCPAddr 127.0.0.1

# Maximum length the queue of pending connections may grow to.
# Default: 200
#MaxConnectionQueueLength 30

# Clamd uses FTP-like protocol to receive data from remote clients.
# If you are using clamav-milter to balance load between remote clamd daemons
# on firewall servers you may need to tune the options below.

# max is 1024)
#
# Default: 100
#MaxQueue 200

# This option causes memory or nested map scans to dump the content to disk.
# If you turn on this option, more data is written to disk and is available
# when the LeaveTemporaryFiles option is enabled.
#ForceToDisk yes

# This option allows you to disable the caching feature of the engine. By
# default, the engine will store an MD5 in a cache of any files that are
# not flagged as virus or that hit limits checks. Disabling the cache will
# have a negative performance impact on large scans.
# Default: no
#DisableCache yes

# In some cases (eg. complex malware, exploits in graphic files, and others),
# ClamAV uses special algorithms to detect abnormal patterns and behaviors that
# may be malicious. This option enables alerting on such heuristically
# detected potential threats.
# Default: yes
#HeuristicAlerts yes

# Allow heuristic alerts to take precedence.
# When enabled, if a heuristic scan (such as phishingScan) detects
# a possible virus/phish it will stop scan immediately. Recommended, saves CPU
# scan-time.
# When disabled, virus/phish detected by heuristic scans will be reported only at
# the end of a scan. If an archive contains both a heuristically detected
# virus/phish, and a real malware, the real malware will be reported
#
# Keep this disabled if you intend to handle “*.Heuristics.*” viruses
# differently from “real” malware.
# If a non-heuristically-detected virus (signature-based) is found first,
# the scan is interrupted immediately, regardless of this config option.
#
# Default: no
#HeuristicScanPrecedence yes

##

# Default: no
#AlertPartitionIntersection yes

##
## Executable files
##

# PE stands for Portable Executable – it’s an executable file format used
# in all 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows operating systems. This option
# allows ClamAV to perform a deeper analysis of executable files and it’s also
# required for decompression of popular executable packers such as UPX, FSG,
# and Petite. If you turn off this option, the original files will still be
# scanned, but without additional processing.
# Default: yes
#ScanPE yes

# Certain PE files contain an authenticode signature. By default, we check
# the signature chain in the PE file against a database of trusted and
# revoked certificates if the file being scanned is marked as a virus.
# If any certificate in the chain validates against any trusted root, but
# does not match any revoked certificate, the file is marked as whitelisted.
# If the file does match a revoked certificate, the file is marked as virus.
# The following setting completely turns off authenticode verification.
# Default: no
#DisableCertCheck yes

## On-access Scan Settings
##

# Enable on-access scanning. Currently, this is supported via fanotify.
# Clamuko/Dazuko support has been deprecated.
# Default: no
#ScanOnAccess yes

# Set the mount point to be scanned. The mount point specified, or the mount
# point containing the specified directory will be watched. If any directories
# are specified, this option will preempt the DDD system. This will notify
# only. It can be used multiple times.
# (On-access scan only)
# Default: disabled
#OnAccessMountPath /
#OnAccessMountPath /home/user

# Don’t scan files larger than OnAccessMaxFileSize
# Value of 0 disables the limit.
# Default: 5M
#OnAccessMaxFileSize 10M

# Set the include paths (all files inside them will be scanned). You can have
# multiple OnAccessIncludePath directives but each directory must be added
# in a separate line. (On-access scan only)

#OnAccessIncludePath /home
#OnAccessIncludePath /students

# Set the exclude paths. All subdirectories are also excluded.
# (On-access scan only)
# Default: disabled
#OnAccessExcludePath /home/bofh

# With this option you can whitelist the root UID (0). Processes run under
# root with be able to access all files without triggering scans or
# permission denied events.
# Note that if clamd cannot check the uid of the process that generated an
# on-access scan event (e.g., because OnAccessPrevention was not enabled, and
# the process already exited), clamd will perform a scan. Thus, setting
# OnAccessExcludeRootUID is not *guaranteed* to prevent every access by the
# root user from triggering a scan (unless OnAccessPrevention is enabled).
# Default: no
#OnAccessExcludeRootUID no

# With this option you can whitelist specific UIDs. Processes with these UIDs
# will be able to access all files without triggering scans or permission
# denied events.
# This option can be used multiple times (one per line).
# Using a value of 0 on any line will disable this option entirely.
# To whitelist the root UID (0) please enable the OnAccessExcludeRootUID
# option.
# Also note that if clamd cannot check the uid of the process that generated an
# on-access scan event (e.g., because OnAccessPrevention was not enabled, and
# the process already exited), clamd will perform a scan. Thus, setting
# OnAccessExcludeUID is not *guaranteed* to prevent every access by the
# specified uid from triggering a scan (unless OnAccessPrevention is enabled).
# Default: disabled
#OnAccessExcludeUID -1

# Toggles dynamic directory determination. Allows for recursively watching
# include paths.
# (On-access scan only)
# Default: no
#OnAccessDisableDDD yes

# Modifies fanotify blocking behaviour when handling permission events.
# If off, fanotify will only notify if the file scanned is a virus,
# and not perform any blocking.
# (On-access scan only)
# Default: no
#OnAccessPrevention yes

# Toggles extra scanning and notifications when a file or directory is
# created or moved.
# Requires the DDD system to kick-off extra scans.
# NOTE: This feature is disabled until a thread resource leak bug
# in the OnAccessExtraScanning code can be resolved.
# (On-access scan only)
# Default: no
#OnAccessExtraScanning yes

##
## Bytecode
##

# With this option enabled ClamAV will load bytecode from the database.
# It is highly recommended you keep this option on, otherwise you’ll miss
# detections for many new viruses.
# Default: yes
#Bytecode yes

# Set bytecode security level.
# Possible values:
# None – No security at all, meant for debugging.
# DO NOT USE THIS ON PRODUCTION SYSTEMS.
# This value is only available if clamav was built
# with –enable-debug!
# TrustSigned – Trust bytecode loaded from signed .c[lv]d files, insert
# runtime safety checks for bytecode loaded from other sources.
# Paranoid – Don’t trust any bytecode, insert runtime checks for all.
# Recommended: TrustSigned, because bytecode in .cvd files already has these
# checks.
# Note that by default only signed bytecode is loaded, currently you can only
# load unsigned bytecode in –enable-debug mode.
#
# Default: TrustSigned
#BytecodeSecurity TrustSigned

# Set bytecode timeout in milliseconds.
#
# Default: 5000
