If you want simple you can write a daemon to monitor the USB bus for  
the attachment of a Mass Storage device and have it run clamscan on  
the device before it actually mounts it, I've done similar to process  
a special hidden partition on an HD if available and there are a lot  
of USB and mass storage device example code from Apple and in the dev  
tools you can use as reference although I would personally examine  
the PHP extension code that was with an older version of ClamAV (not  
sure if they still include it) and link the libraries directly to the  
daemon and perform the scan directly but that's just me.
