Another product to be aware of is Trend Interscan VirusWall

at http://www.antivirus.com/

(For those on slackware, I have a patch - the only linux they officially 
support is the Red Hat style ones - at website.lineone.net/~ranyardm) 

It  does lots of things, email scan, ftp, http and a couple of others.

I'm sure with a bit of vfs magic it could be made to do real-time on samba.
