Type Of Files Analyzed By Clamav

Recommended Posts



I would like to know if ClamAV is able to detect viruses in the following types of files :

- Macro in Microsoft Office files?

- Access files?

- Open office files?


- Visual Basic Scripts?

- Video files (MOV, FLV, MP4, F4V, SWF)?


Thanks a lot for our answer.
