Topic: ClamAV problems
This morning I came in to a non-functioning mail server. After a little digging, ClamAV "updated" its database to a corrupt one, and refuses to start.
I removed the offending /var/lib/clamav/daily.cld, and it all comes back up. Good! Except when I run a freshclam (Either manually or automatically) the database gets "updated" to the corrupt one again... Seems the new database is corrupt, and if that's the case, I can't imagine I'm the only one having that problem?
Needless to say that's not acceptable... So the question I have is, how do I fix this problem, by either:
- Fix the database once and for all (I have a feeling this is up to the clamav people, but you never know)
- Prevent freshclam from running and corrupting the database again (I did stop the clamav-freshclam daemon. Is that enough?)
- Take clamav out of the whole system so it won't bring down the server?
