Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Re-usable Code  

Hello guys and gals,
I was seeking for virus scanner addon for vBulletin 3.6.x , i found out one product for 3.5.8 Jafo232's addon but it was using fprot which is needing license and not free. So i decided do make it for 3.6.x and using LibClamAV.
It works fine and it's simple.
Here you go.
Thanks Jafo232 for his addon and idea and cheesegrits for his sample.

What does this plugin do?

This plugin let you have virus scanner for your forum's attachment managing.

Open your admin control panel and then
Plugin System -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product] -> Select 'product-vscan.xml' from your computer then press 'Import'
This plugin uses ClamAV for scanning files there is two method available for scanning:
First method requires LibClamAV support on your php settings. You can check it on phpinfo. If you do not have ClamAV , You can download it free at here and faster than second method.If you can not find php-clamav due to problems from its publisher server. You can download which i attached or you can download compiled version or if you are using Debian based system just type apt-get install php5-clamavlib on your shell.
Second method uses clamscan binary of ClamAV does not require LibClamAV just installing ClamAV enough for it but its a bit slower than first method.
Please feel free to ask any questions

Current version: 0.2a
File name: plugin-vscan2.xml
Change history:
0.2a: Added function for scanning file if php does not have ClamAV support this function uses clamscan and no need libclamav support just installing ClamAV enough for this somehow its a bit slower than php-clamav module, and installing php-clamav strongly suggested.Who is using 0.1a and having php-clamav on their system do not need update because there is no change for php-clamav support but if you want to feel better you can update it.
0.1a: Addon written based from Jafo232's old but changed scanning method for using libclamav

I was on holiday and now busy with registration on new season of school. I'll look for 3.7.3 PL1 but i think its compatible with it about other phpclamavlib i think it can be easy to add support for it too.
Lighttpd 1.4.19 + PHP 5.2.8 + MySQL 5.0.75 + Pound 2.4.2 + Varnish 2.0.1 + XCache 1.2.2 + Memcached 1.2.2 + ClamAV 0.94 + Suhosin 0.9.23 + Linux 2.6.26

I installed this but it does nothing? I installed both clamav and the php extension.
It won't show any virus even there is a virus in the attachment.
