    What does my log mean that it found 45 items but most are clam items

    I ran the clam scan and 45 items were found. Most of them said something about a clam.... type fille. All are various type. Do I have infections are is clam av scanning itself and finding infections that way?

    How can I tell what an infection is in this output?

    Do I need to put different parameters to show only the infected files? I thought the -i parameter ensured that I only saw infected files. This may be the case in the below posted, but I am new at running this. Thanks in advance!

    Code:
    clamscan -ri --bell --exclude-dir=proc --exclude-dir=sys --exclude-dir=dev /

    Hello and welcome to the forums,

    Looks like you installed the clamav-testfiles package. They are all fake virus files.

    Ha,

    That's a relief. I am new to the Ubuntu world and ClamAV. I messed around with Red Hat years ago. So, I still have much to learn. But, hey, at least I know that ClamAV is working if it found the fake virus files. I am going to leave them so that I can tell its running. Thanks for the info!
