Understood.  The main current limitation to this is that clamav is a separate process that needs to scan files and in this case you are wanting to inspect a particular portion of a request.  There has been some discussions about adding Mod features that can stream data to a running process (such as clamav in daemon mode).  Today, I would suggest looking at using a custom Lua script that could extract out the request body data, save it to a temp file and then scan it with clamav.  I am sure this would work, but is probably not very performant.



We wrote an extension for mod_security locally that runs the clamav scanner against the request body file descriptor

At the time, there was a problem and we were not able to extract the request body using lua.
