These controls relate to each other -- this one is more on point:
Malicious Code Protection
but it ties in with others like the one I cited before, and these:
Security Assessment and Authorization
All of these are /part/ of Fedramp. Fedramp is not the only government regulation I have to deal with.

This line of questioning is completely off-topic and unhelpful. Even if it was the case that somehow I don't need to scan the /tmp folder due to government regulations, scanning temp folders is not an unreasonable request. These are actual files on a file system that could very much contain malware.
Are you going to address why 'clamscan --tempdir /tmp /tmp' doesn't produce the same behavior, that 'clamdscan /tmp' does?
