ClamAV Alert about new config version

NethServer Version: 7.7.1908
Module: clamav

Hi friends,

since this morning I get Alert messages from clamav:


ALERT: New version : v6.3.0 @ https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs



ALERT: New config version : v81 @ https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs


What to do??

TIA flatspin

I’ve just started getting those as well.

Same behaviour here

Don’t know if it’s the right procedure (don’t do it in production!) but I just upgraded the files as described here for version 6.1 and below

I had to move a file because it was downloaded to wrong location:

mv /usr/local/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh /usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh

Now after running /usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh I don’t get the “alerts” anymore.

Something went wrong between the developer and the EPEL package maintainer :slight_smile:

This is the upstream bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1794506

To disable the alerts, this should do the job (not tested):

sed -i  's/MAILTO=root/MAILTO=/' /etc/cron.d/clamav-unofficial-sigs

Same here.
I would prefer an “official” fix though.

+1 from me on the “official fix”. I’m paying for the stable update repository (Crostino subscription) so this sort of problem shouldn’t happen.

Hello,
Same here, getting plenty of emails.

Kind Regards,

Sorry but it will happen :frowning: It is upstream code shipped months ago which is now reporting an invalid message.

OK, I accept you can’t control upstream faults. Please publish an official fix as soon as you’re able to - there must be lots of Nethserver users who are experiencing this issue.

Yeah!

You can try the autobuild RPM from https://github.com/NethServer/nethserver-antivirus/pull/11

I followed upgrade instructions from developerpage (as @mrmarkuz postet) right now and was “downgraded” to version 6.1.0 with config V80 and no errors anymore.

I think the developer has already reacted. The file clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh is only 4 hours old.

Hi@All,

after following the upgrade instructions posted by mrmarkuz i received this message vial mail:

/usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh: line 1945: ir: command not found.

What must i do to solve this problem?

Regards

I’m getting the same thing. Not sure what to do though–a quick Google doesn’t find anything that looks relevant.

Hi,

since this morning i received this Mail:

Subject: Cron root@myserver [ -x /usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh ] && /bin/bash /usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh
ALERT: New version : v7.0.1 @ https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs

After update to v 7.0.1 i received this message hourly.

Edit: And now i think i have a other problem.

Friends, who can help me to stop the trouble?

Sorry, i wish I new how to fix this. My NethServer is a production device (runs my home network and email) so I’m waiting for the official fix via the software center. I hope they sort it out soon. It’s not causing me a huge problem, i just delete the junk emails.

Do you have any backups or snapshots you could restore from?

That doesn’t help. I restored V6.1.0 and now I’m getting this every Hour:


ALERT: New version : v7.0.1 @ https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs



ALERT: New config version : v91 @ https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs


Followed the update instruction on the devs page for 6.1

Downloaded files to tmp dir. Made clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh executable. Copied files into right directories.
and did a forced update:

sh /usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh --force

No errors so far.
Now waiting for cron to execute, if this will generate an error or a message.
Will report at about 09:30 :clock930:

EDIT: Markt this as solution, as for my problem it is. No more errors in the log, no more email-alerts. Everything seems to fine again. It was a upstream issue. Nothing partikular to nethserver.
The spaming was annoying, but not a real issue. So have a nice day all together…
