It depends completely on the signature. If the signature is strict as the
EICAR signature is, then clamav will only detect the virus under strict
circumstances. If the signature for the virus/malware allows for data
preceding/following the actual bytes that match the signature, then a
multi-part form with a virus will still be caught.
