New Version of CLAMAV is out today - Ver 0.90

ver 0.90 has some new features and as such, a couple of new option switches.

With the above "Howto: Update ClamAV" instructions in mind and also assuming you are upgrading from version 0.88.7. If upgrading from something else other than 0.88.7 , substitute your version for 0.88.7 mentioned below.

Also changed the following:

vi ../conf/ change option: 'LogTime' to 'LogTime yes' ( was just 'LogTime' by itself before ) change option: 'LogSyslog' to 'LogSyslog yes' ( was just 'LogSyslog' by itself before )

vi ../conf/ Add option: ScriptedUpdates yes

cd /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/ copy: clamd.conf copy: freshclam.conf

copy: /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.88.7/etc/clamd.conf ../../clamav-0.90/etc/ copy: /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.88.7/etc/freshclam.conf ../../clamav-0.90/etc/

(You just don't want to use clamav defaults but use your previous config with zimbra specific config stuff )

For the curious: cd /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/ diff clamd.conf to see changes.

Modified /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/clamd.conf with 'LogTime yes' and 'LogSyslog yes' above.

For /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/freshclam.conf I added the line: ScriptedUpdates yes

ScriptedUpdates means that clamav gets the just the virus DB changes and not the whole file each time.

Verify owner is zimbra:zimbra again.

Restart amavis and check the /opt/zimbra/log/clamd.log to see if all is right with the world again.
