Clamav update failure

#1 Post by pjk » Mon Jun 14, 2010 4:23 am

Clamav works on first use but repeat attempts fail.
This is due to wget "" failing with an error "unsupported scheme"
This results in an empty "clamav-update.html" file so on the second try the version comparison always succeeds.
I presume this is because of a change in the web site.
"" does contain both main.cvd and daily.cvd with release numbers and so should work.

Fixed. It seems to be a matter of replacing the old URL with the new one.

The updated script is available here. Replaces ubcd/tools/linux/antivirus/
