Updating clam av
The response when running the command sudo freshclam -v from a terminal is (for example): Ignoring mirror 1.218 (has connected too many times with an outdated version). By enabling unsupported updates this problem is solved (at the expense of using now an unsupported version of Clam AV).
As a result I now have version 0.97.3 dfsg-1ubuntu0.11.04.1-lucid1.
Clam AV doesn't disinfect files, it either moves or removes them. For example, if using Wine and it deletes an infected file, it could break a program without having the data saved.
Download the official source code using the links below.
We recommend running the Clam AV Stable Version on production systems. Find Win32, Mac OS X, Linux & BSD signatures in the Alternate Versions section.
When the i run the command 'freshclam' to update the clamav application, it is not taking the database updates.
Because the pc doesn't have access to the internet so i would like to do it manually.
