ClamAV log file location


I just booted up a live Linux Mint USB flash drive and ran a clamav scan on my unbootable Windows partition. The output is:
Code:
----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
Known viruses: 3224085
Engine version: 0.97.8
Scanned directories: 38255
Scanned files: 245776
Infected files: 1
Total errors: 2
Data scanned: 19007.85 MB
Data read: 31481.10 MB (ratio 0.60:1)
Time: 3940.566 sec (65 m 40 s)
Where is the log file for this so I can find what those errors and infected files are? Some websites mention a clamav.log or clamscan.log file in /var/log, but I can't seem to find those files.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in the Linux Software forum (not a Linux security question) and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

As for the log file it's one of the options you would define when you run clamscan. If you didn't before running it then assert there is no log file.
