Custom Laravel 5 anti-virus validator for file uploads.
A custom Laravel virus validator based on ClamAV anti-virus scanner for file uploads.
You must have ClamAV anti-virus scanner running on the server to make this package work.
You can see the ClamAV installation instructions on the official ClamAV documentation.
For example on an Ubuntu machine, you can do:
# Install clamav virus scanner sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y clamav-daemon # Update virus definitions sudo freshclam # Start the scanner service sudo systemctl enable --now clamav-daemon clamav-freshclam
This package is not tested on windows, but if you have ClamAV running (usually on port 3310) it should work.
You will also need to have
sockets extension installed and enabled (all executions without this module will fail with this error -
"Use of undefined constant 'AF_INET'").
1. Install the package through Composer.
$ composer require sunspikes/clamav-validator
This package supports Laravel new Package Discovery.
If you are using Laravel < 5.5, you need to add
Sunspikes\ClamavValidator\ClamavValidatorServiceProvider::class to your
providers array in
'providers' => [ // ... Sunspikes\ClamavValidator\ClamavValidatorServiceProvider::class, ],
The default configuration file does use
ENV to override the defaults. If you want to change the configuration file
anyway you run the following command to publish the package config file:
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Sunspikes\ClamavValidator\ClamavValidatorServiceProvider" --tag=config
Once the command is finished you should have a
config/clamav.php file that will be used as well.
If you want to customize the translation or add your own language you can run the the following command to publish the language files to a folder you maintain:
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Sunspikes\ClamavValidator\ClamavValidatorServiceProvider" --tag=lang
This will copy the language files to
resources/lang/vendor/clamav-validator for Laravel >= 5.1
Use it like any
$rules = [ 'file' => 'clamav', ];
ClamavValidator will automatically run multiple files one-by-one through ClamAV in case
file represent multiple uploaded files.
