My ClamAV was set up following this answer. I wanted to run it on the whole system, using clamscan -r /, and it told me: Infected files: 1 in the results, without any further information. It looks like I should've run it with -l to have a logfile, but it took hours to do the scan.

So, was the infected file removed/moved somewhere? Or at least logged somewhere? Scrolling up the terminal is not an option, as it only saves the latest X lines which are nothing compared to the thousands of files it scanned.

In the clamd-response I set it up to remove found viruses, but it should also write to the logfile which is now empty, so I guess that wasn't triggered as it wasn't the daemon doing it perhaps?

Is there a way to see what was found with the scan?
