If you are using a vscan-clamav build which uses the clamd daemon (the
default, afaik), then you need to make sure that the "clamav" user
has access to that file.

The latest vscan-clamav version, however, has an option to be built with
libvlamac support instead of clamd. In that case, it uses the same privileges
as the user connected to the share to perform the scan.
