3.9 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

ClamAV Puppet Module

This module provides mechanisms to manage clamav, allowing for the creation of scheduled scans via the clamav::scan define as well as running the clamd daemon using the clamav::clamd class.


Setup a clamav scan that scans everything except the /sys and /dev, and does not run on a schedule.

 clamav::scan { 'all-but-sys-and-dev':
   exclude_dir => ['(?i)/^\/(sys|dev)/'],
   scan        => ['/'],
   enable      => false,

Add signature and file whitelist entries in /var/lib/clamav/local.ign2, /var/lib/clamav/local.sfp, and /var/lib/clamav/local.fp:

class { 'clamav':
  whitelist_sig => [
  whitelist_sha => [
  whitelist_md5 => [ 'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e' ]

Enable clamd:

include clamav::clamd

Enable clamd and setup on-access scanning

class { 'clamav::clamd':
  scan_on_access          => 'yes',
  on_access_max_file_size => '15M',
  on_access_exclude_path  => [ '/srv/noscan' ],
  on_access_include_path  => [ '/srv' ],
