ClamAV daily.cvd 10274 broken

Post by porcupine » 2010-01-09 07:17

Saturday started gloriously with all servers rejecting all messages due to being tagged as containing a virus.

refer to this post on the ClamAV maillist, there was a bad entry in 10274 which was set as "0" bytes.

Edit: links to older DB no longer required.

10275 is broken because 10274 is broken.

As far as I know this is not a ClamAV engine problem, it is a ClamAV database problem.

If you have a daily.cld file (not daily.cvd) you can open it in eg notepad++ and search for pdf-9669 you will see the erroneous entry.

As it appears that many people are still using pre 0.95 versions of ClamAV for whatever reason:
Luca Gibelli wrote:Dear ClamAV users,

this is a reminder that 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.

We would like to keep on supporting all old versions of our engine, but
unfortunately this is no longer possible without causing a disservice to
people running a recent release of ClamAV.

For more information please refer to the original announcement:

Best regards,
