TClamav which use ClamAv antivirus (libclamav ) causes memory leak. It also is very slow.

Step to reproduce

  • Make sure ClamAv antivirus and its development library is installed.
  • create Fano Framework web application, for example as SCGI.
  • Add form for file upload
  • Add controller which handle file upload
  • create validation class and add antivirus validation rule using TClamAv.
  • Enable -gh command line in
  • compile for development environment
$ BUILD_TYPE=dev ./
  • Run application
  • Upload a file. Observe that antivirus scan is very slow.
  • Stop application. Observe heaprtc output.

TClamAv implementation that using libclamav API directly is removed and replace with TLocalClamdAv implementation which using clamd daemon over network socket. See 76bf930ed82f.

The issue of memory leak is resolved with new implementation, however this issue is deliberately kept open until issue with original implementation using libclamav is resolved.
