Hi Clamav Team,

Can clamscan detect the file type/extension as well?

root at fwuser-virtual-machine:/home/file_capture/tmp# clamscan

The reason I am asking is in my case, my file name generated is SHA256 of
the original file. I lose the file extension as well. After clamav detects
the file as clean/virus, I need to report the file extension along with
it's detection result.
Thanks in advance!
