Hi Al Varnell,

I have already gone through https://www.clamav.net/documents/safebrowsing.

That URL i have already shared with one of ClamAV development team members

I did not understand your point what you said --- "You will probably need
to obfuscate it in order to get it through the mail system, something like
httx://....".

My purpose behind using ClamAV is to scan Linux server and plus HTML
templates which we regularly receive on server.

And the reason behind using "Safebrowing" option is to detect deceptive,
Phishing URL's in HTML templates in the same way as Chrome warns us before
opening such URL's. I want ClamAV to detect such files as "Infected" which
contain deceptive, Phishing URL's.

Waiting for your quick and needful response.

Regards
Sunny
