    hello cpanel

    i use clamav distribution from cpanel to help protect my server. but some time i saw the database were slow to be update. and for 1 week or more i still have this messages

    Code:
    LibClamAV Warning: **************************************************
    LibClamAV Warning: *** The virus database is older than 7 days! ***
    LibClamAV Warning: *** Please update it as soon as possible. ***
    LibClamAV Warning: **************************************************
    
    when i run
    Code:
    [root] /usr/bin/clamscan -ri --remove /
    
    those messages are always show. i think many of cpanel server owner also dependence their server security with this antivirus.

    so i think it's would be very great ide if cpanel keep fast update this virus db.

    thanks and sorry for your convenience

    - - - Updated - - -

    i wondering what were the goal of the daily cpanel cron update if we must run clamav update manually. isn't that should be an update package from cpanel?

    Hello :)

    Are you receiving any email notifications regarding the failure of freshclam on your system? Does it fail if you run it manually? EX:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/freshclam
    Thank you.
