I tried to scan tar files and tar.gz files using clamav(through squid, squidclamav and c-icap) but it just pass through. Both these files contain the "eicar.com" test file.
But if it is a zip file then it works!!!

ScanArchive parameter is enabled in clamd.conf.

Do I need any special setting to scan these files? I am using a RHEL5 server and clamd/clamav version 0.98.5
