The ClamAV ERROR should be solved
Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) is a free software, cross-platform antimalware toolkit able to detect many types of malware, including viruses. It was developed for Unix and has third party versions available for AIX, BSD, HP-UX, Linux, macOS, OpenVMS, OSF (Tru64) and Solaris. As of version 0.97.5, ClamAV builds and runs on Microsoft Windows. Both ClamAV and its updates are made available free of charge. One of its main uses is on mail servers as a server-side email virus scanner.
Sourcefire, developer of intrusion detection products and the owner of Snort, announced on 17 August 2007 that it had acquired the trademarks and copyrights to ClamAV from five key developers. Upon joining Sourcefire, the ClamAV team joined the Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team (VRT). In turn, Cisco acquired Sourcefire in 2013. The Sourcefire VRT became Cisco Talos, and ClamAV development remains there.
ClamAV includes a command-line scanner, automatic database updater, and a scalable multi-threaded daemon running on an anti-virus engine from a shared library. The application features a Milter interface for sent mail and on-demand scanning.
The ClamAV virus database is updated at least every four hours and as of 10 February 2017 contained over 5,760,000 virus signatures with the daily update Virus DB number at 23040.
