    Make sure you scan with the --secure flag to have it force opening of

    Within sanitizer, I hand-off to a wrapper script which calls:

    /usr/local/bin/uvscan --clean --noexpire --secure - $1

    My sanitizer line looks like:

    file_list_X_scanner = 0:19:12,13:/usr/local/bin/ %FILENAME

    Exit codes: 0 is clean, 19 is the "found but cleaned", 12 Tried to
    clean, but still infected, and 13 is one or more hostile objects found,
    not cleaned.

    man uvscan for more info.
