    Default Clamav update issue

    Our mail server has recently gotten the issue where the antivirus has stopped due to a malformed clamav database.

    After searching for fixes online, we restarted the server and disabled the antivirus. It's a temporary solution, so we decided to download the latest clamav signatures.

    However when checking the log we now have the following issue:

    Mon Feb 28 15:21:57 2011 -> Reading databases from /opt/zimbra/data/clamav/db
    Mon Feb 28 15:21:57 2011 -> Not loading PUA signatures.

    LibClamAV Error: cli_tgzload: Can't load daily.ldb

    Mon Feb 28 15:21:57 2011 -> ERROR: Malformed database
    ERROR: Malformed database


    This clearly means it won't work.

    Has anyone had this problem and managed to get it working? Preferably without updating the clamav engine.

    You don't update clamav but a forum search will give you the answer: site:zimbra.com +"ERROR: Malformed database" - Yahoo! Search Results
