I am writting because I am working on a script that uses CLAMAV to scan uploaded files for viruses. I have noticed that when I upload a file that is infected with test virus such a "" the file gets deleted even if I rename or move the file or get a chance to scan it for viruses. If PHP is deleting the file is there any way to stop the file from being deleted or output the reason why the file was deleted.

Reproduce code:

chmod ("$img", 0775);

$tmp_file = "/tmp/". md5(uniqid(rand(), true));

rename("$img", $tmp_file);

$clamscan_prog = "/usr/local/bin/clamscan";

$data_input = "-v --stdout $tmp_file";

$data_size = strlen("$data_input");

$scan_result = passthru("$clamscan_prog $data_input");


die("$tmp_file <br> $scan_result");

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
