this is an older feature request with a comment from a former maintainer which
might result in wonfix, but maybe I'm wrong:

That's not very general, and isn't a particularly useful feature anyway, since
one can very easily run the files through ClamAV _after_ they've been saved.
Scanning-and-then-saving implies it would have to be saved to a temporary file
_anyway_, or else handled entirely in memory (which is generally

Wget upstream development _is_ planning to eventually support more generic
process-filtered/plugin mechanisms for handling such things as link-parsing,
content-filtering, and probably filestore management (such as saving to a
tarball or multipart/related archive). That last feature would make a suitable
general hook for plugging in a ClamAV scanner, perhaps, which could simply
decline to save the files it doesn't like. Still have the same problem,
though, of needing to save to a temporary file or else hold it in memory.

thx for your feedback.
