If you check out the scans they use, they all have CLI interface afaik. You could write something like this in about... 20 minutes for a command line interface (allowing for googling of CLI options and testing). (I know because I did) Some of those scans take FOREVER (I'm looking at you CLAM).

Whilst this may appear to save time by just one click, you're going to wait the best part of a day on some machines for some scans that aren't great. Maybe for a double check scan left overnight to make sure nothing residual but, IMO, nothing more.

A better option, from what I can tell from the description and screenshots, would be TN's Eureka's UVK. Similar idea with, what looks like, better execution.

And CLAM is crap; utter crap. The only reason I can see it getting any love is "at least it's one more opinion" but it's detection rates are abysmal with some non-AVs getting better results.

Miss Post, who would have thought, with 19 different tabs open, one would get confused.
