Hi all,

Are you guys getting the same errors of ClamAV not beeing able to update the virus databases?

I have SMS64 2.0.9 running ClamAV 0.99.2 and the errors are:

Code:
ERROR: getpatch: Can't download daily-26100.cdiff from db.us.clamav.net
ERROR: Can't download daily.cvd from db.us.clamav.net
ERROR: getpatch: Can't download daily-26100.cdiff from database.clamav.net
ERROR: Can't download daily.cvd from database.clamav.net


Already tried to delete mirrors.dat and/or bytecode.cld with no luck.
Also deleted all files in /usr/share/clamav then launched
freshclam

But the response was:

Code:
WARNING: getfile: Unknown response from db.us.clamav.net (IP: 104.16.218.84)
WARNING: Can't download main.cvd from db.us.clamav.net
Trying again in 5 secs...
[/i]

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

well it seems that database.clamav.net is under cloudflare so a simple curl/wget wouldn't work, to bypass DDoS protection..

you can download manually and then try to update, from

https://database.clamav.net/main.cvd
https://database.clamav.net/daily.cvd
https://database.clamav.net/bytecode.cvd

although might need a newer version of freshclam..

I'll provide update packages from latest clamav...

For what is worth, I already have plans to reboot SMS to version SMS-3 , dropping qt3 and kde3 obviously , main plan is for no DE at first, to have a working SMS up to date...


regards
