Scan attachments with ClamAV?

Hey guys,

are there any plans on implementing anti virus scans for attachments in the future?

I would imagine something similar to the Nextcloud app “files_antivirus” where each upload is scanned with ClamAV (unix socket). If there is a match, the system will delete this file (or restrict access to admins only) and/or send a notification.

This could be combined with a small admin menu with the option to always block certain files, e.g. by filename or extension.

Let me know what you think

Have a nice day


This is currently not planned on our site.

Personally I think it is important to note when the system should scan the attachments? If you only mean for incoming E-Mails, this should be handled by your E-Mail-Server.

if you mean with every upload an agents adds an attachment, that’s something else. :slight_smile:


Thanks for your reply.

I was talking about all files uploaded via web interface. As you said, mails and mail attachment should definitely be handled by mail servers or designated spam/malware gateways.

Have nice day
