    Hi,

    I've just noticed that clamd does not appear to be scanning inside ZIP files.

    I'm using the clamavconnector addon.

    Sending the EICAR test virus from http://www.aleph-tec.com/eicar/index.php manages to get straight through to my clients inboxes - never a good situation to be in.

    As a work-around I've blocked rar and zip files using a demime acl, however that's far from ideal.

    Incidentally, uploading a zipped EICAR using FTP and then using clamscan to scan the zip finds the virus as expected.

    Has anyone else seen this behaviour or got a more usable fix?

    I've already tried removing clamavconnector and reinstalling it but to no avail...

    Thanks,
    Dave.

    Edit - should have said that I have this occurring on multiple servers running the latest cPanel Release.

    Solved...

    Found the problem... an update somewhere along the line had removed some bits from /etc/exim.conf so that the only thing being run was the file-extension filtering... After correcting that everything has sprung back into life again... :)

    I am having the same problem. What did you do to the exim.conf file to make it works?
