I am looking for a Python package that allows me to scan uploaded files (or the bytestream of them) for malware. I have found a couple of wrappers for calmAV, but all of them seem rather questionable in quality:

  • Only single maintainer / no organization behind it
  • Failing build or no CI at all
  • Last commit is more than 6 months ago
  • Unclear how many big projects have a look at it. I would feel more comfortable if I know that e.g. it was parts of the Pallets project (Flask) or that Django relied on them and thus it would be very likely to be maintained in future.

Is there a maintained, well-organized, professionally developed Python package for checking files for malware?

Some are tailored towards some frameworks:
