    [Clamav-announce] announcing ClamAV 0.95

    Dear ClamAV users,

    ClamAV 0.95 introduces many bugfixes, improvements and additions. To make
    the transition easier, we put various tips and upgrade notes on this page:
    https://wiki.clamav.net/Main/UpgradeNotes095. For detailed list of changes
    and bugfixes, please see the ChangeLog.

    The following are the key features of this release:

    - Google Safe Browsing support: in addition to the heuristic and signature
    based phishing detection mechanisms already available in ClamAV, the
    scanner can now make use of the Google's blacklists of suspected
    phishing and malware sites. The ClamAV Project distributes a constantly
    updated Safe Browsing database, which can be automatically fetched by
    freshclam. For more information, please see freshclam.conf(5) and
    http://safebrowsing.clamav.net.

    - New clamav-milter: The program has been redesigned and rewritten from
    scratch. The most notable difference is that the internal mode has been
    dropped which means that now a working clamd companion is required.
    The milter now also has its own configuration file.

    - Clamd extensions: The protocol has been extended to lighten the load
    that clamd puts on the system, solve limitations of the old protocol,
    and reduce latency when signature updates are received. For more
    information about the new extensions please see the official
    documentation and the upgrade notes.

    - Improved API: The API used to program ClamAV's engine (libclamav) has
    been redesigned to use modern object-oriented techniques and solves
    various API/ABI compatibility issues between old and new releases.
    You can find more information in Section 6 of clamdoc.pdf and in
    the upgrade notes.

    - ClamdTOP: This is a new program that allows system administrators to
    monitor clamd. It provides information about the items in the clamd's
    queue, clamd's memory usage, and the version of the signature database,
    all in real-time and in nice curses-based interface.

    - Memory Pool Allocator: Libclamav now includes its own memory pool
    allocator based on memory mapping. This new solution replaces the
    traditional malloc/free system for the copy of the signatures that
    is kept in memory. As a result, clamd requires much less memory,
    particularly when signature updates are received and the database is
    loaded into memory.

    - Unified Option Parser: Prior to version 0.95 each program in ClamAV's
    suite of programs had its own set of runtime options. The new general
    parser brings consistency of use and validation to these options across
    the suite. Some command line switches of clamscan have been renamed
    (the old ones will still be accepted but will have no effect and will
    result in warnings), please see clamscan(1) and clamscan --help for
    the details.

    Update it via yum or apt-get. Nothing special for clamav.

    Update centos 5.3 issue

    I updated via yum on centos 5.3 but when I restart clamd I get an issue:

    clam AntiVirus Daemon: LibClamAV Warning: Cannot dlopen: file not found - unrar support unavailable

    Seems that the rpm has dropped the support for rar files.

    Yes is a know bug, already fixed if you compile from source.

    You can come back to release before or wait a new release

    Exactly what does it say?. We've been installing lots of 0.96 from source over the past two days: See this post.

    I've upgraded the version not from the sources but from here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ClamAV

    It's seems updated:

    ii clamav 0.96+dfsg-1ubuntu1~hardy~ppa1 anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface
    ii clamav-base 0.96+dfsg-1ubuntu1~hardy~ppa1 anti-virus utility for Unix - base package
    ii clamav-daemon 0.96+dfsg-1ubuntu1~hardy~ppa1 anti-virus utility for Unix - scanner daemon
    ii clamav-freshclam 0.96+dfsg-1ubuntu1~hardy~ppa1 anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database update utility

    but it's still down and if i check for clamav status it looks like this again:

    LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
    LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated. ***
    LibClamAV Warning: *** DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/support/faq ***
    LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
    LibClamAV Error: cli_hex2str(): Malformed hexstring: This ClamAV version has reached End of Life! Please upgrade to version 0.95 or later. For more information see www.clamav.net/eol-clamav-094 and www.clamav.net/download (length: 169)
    LibClamAV Error: Problem parsing database at line 742
    LibClamAV Error: Can't load daily.ndb: Malformed database
    LibClamAV Error: cli_tgzload: Invalid size in header
    LibClamAV Error: Can't load /usr/local/share/clamav/daily.cld: Malformed database
    ERROR: Malformed database

    I NEED TO DISABLE AT LEAST CLAMAV SOON, MY CUSTOMERS NEEDS TO CHECK THEIR E-MAIL... THEN I'LL WORK TO FIX IT.

    THANK YOU.

    You're probably calling the old version.

    Check to see where Ubuntu has put the new install. Once it's working make sure you call it properly in your exim.conf file.

    Or go through your exim.conf file, looking for clam and comment out the lines you need to, and restart exim.

    If you can't do it yourself, then maybe you'll need someone else to do it for you.

    Being I don't install from ubuntu repositories but rather from source, I can't be positive, but it looks as if it is.
