    Default update clamav


    Clamav 0.94.2 is included with BT4 Final. Please update the package to 0.95.3 and the auto increment function doesn't work in 0.94.


    End of Life Announcement: ClamAV 0.94.x

    October 5th, 2009 Posted by - webmaster

    All ClamAV releases older than 0.95 are affected by a bug in freshclam which prevents incremental updates from working with signatures longer than 980 bytes

    Starting from 15 April 2010 our CVD will contain a special signature which disables all clamd installations older than 0.95 – that is to say older than 1 year.

    I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss

    I tried uninstalling the version of clamAV that ships with bt4preFinal, but it seems that a bunch of other packages depend on it.

    FYI, if you download the current source from, it compiles and installs fine. Remember to run the new versions of clamscan and freshclam (I just renamed them since the newer versions are further down the path).
