We have in house code to connect to Sophos via SAVID and Avast via the daemon

These are both more efficient than invoking the command line programs for these

The code is on the v4 code base, i can provide our SweepViruses.pm from which
you can extract the code.

However, SweepViruses.pm may be dated as well going forward. Maybe the wheel
should not be reinvented here as there is robust perl AV code[1] that could be used
as the building blocks for a new SweepViruses.pm
