    Not sure this is the correct section to post such a question, but it's somewhat related to security.

    Ever since 11.44, when I try to upload a file through the file manager (any file whatsoever), it gives me an error that the file contains a virus. This error occurs with any and all files:

    Where is this "virus scan" configured? How can I disable or change the settings?

    Note: I am using cxs too, which might be relevant, but I have not found any information on cxs causing such issues, and the problem started after the 11.44 update.

    I think you have installed ClamAV on your server via another method instead of WHM>> cPanel >> Manage Plugins. I will suggest you please remove the current ClamAV and then try to install it via WHM.
