Dear ClamAV users,

about 15 mins ago (1PM CET may 7th. 2010) we released daily.cvd 10938. This update apparently
caused a segmentation fault in all ClamAV versions older than 0.96
on 32 bit systems.

We just released daily.cvd 10939 which removes the faulty signature and
we have taken measures to ensure that this problem won't happen again.

We recommend using a monitor tool like clamdwatch or clamdmon to
automatically restart clamd whenever it dies.

If you are already using a similar solution, your clamd will be
restarted automatically as soon as freshclam downloads the daily.cvd
10939 update.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Regards,

--

I confirm with freshclam this poses no concern. ;)

add clamd and freshclam to Service Monitor and using update script, restart clamd and freshclam when down :)
Can you be more specific, to help admins who aren't sure how to do this?
