If BitDefender offers a kernel module (like e.g. H+BEDV AntiVir+Dazuko 
or Kaspersky AntiVirus for FileServers) for hooking file system calls, 
then no Samba configuration is needed at all.

If BitDefenfer ships within a daemon program, which offers communication 
via TCP and/or Unix sockets or an API (licensed (L)GPL !), it _might_ be 
supported by samba-vscan in the future, as my time is simply too limited 
to add the integration right now.
