clamav Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status

A cookbook for installing and configuring ClamAV.

Requirements

This cookbook requires a RHEL/CentOS/Scientific, Debian/Ubuntu, or compatible OS.

As of v2.0, it requires Chef 12.5+ or Chef 12.x and the compat_resource cookbook.

Usage

Either add the default recipe to your run list, or use the included custom resources in a recipe of your own.

Recipes

default

Performs an attribute-driven (see below) installation and configuration of ClamAV.

Attributes

default

A recipe-based install offers several attributes that can be overridden and passed into the various resources.

You can choose to install a specific version of ClamAV instead of the latest.

default['clamav']['version'] = nil

The development libraries can be installed as well, but are not by default.

default['clamav']['dev'] = false

A configuration hash can be provided for the clamd.conf and freshclam.conf that will be generated.

default['clamav']['clamd']['config'] = nil
default['clamav']['freshclam']['config'] = nil

Configuration attributes are set with ClamAV property names in camel-case format, for example:

default['clamav"]['clamd']['log_file'] = '/var/log/clamav/clamd.log'
default['clamav']['clamd']['scan_p_e'] = false

See the ClamAV documentation for other valid settings.

The two ClamAV daemons are disabled by default.

default['clamav']['clamd']['enabled'] = false
default['clamav']['freshclam']['enabled'] = false
