      Description

      With the growing popularity of containerization, it would be good to extend ClamAV antivirus plugin to support virus scanning using TCP sockets (i.e. over the network).

      When scalability is in place, this feature eliminates the need to run ClamAV service on each container/host that provides web service, thus reduces complexity and performance overhead.  In case of containers, this approach is also aligned with best practice of having one process per container.
