When using a web proxy, it is not possible to update
the virus definitions without extra steps.
Permissions for /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf have to be
set to 600 before root can update using the freshclam
command or from the Database->Update From Internet menu
option in avscan.
To allow insert user to update virus lists, the
following changes have to be made:
First, remove proxy user and password settings
completely from freshclam.conf if they are blank - due
to this requirement, users requiring proxy
user/password will only be able to update virus defs as
chgrp clamav /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf
chgrp -R clamav /var/log/clamav
chmod 660 /etc/clamav/freshclam
chmod -R g+w /var/lib/clamav /var/log/clamav
After these changes insert is able to update virus defs.
