Incidentally there are some Open Source Virus Scanners out there,
or Anomy can be used with commercial ones. There's an example file
somewhere (comes with Anomy, I think) which has examples of how to include
most common virus scanners; that would probably be a good spot to start
looking for them. The only FOSS one which springs to mind is ClamAV, but
I know there is also at least one other.
