Thank you @mrmarkuz
/etc/cron.d/clamav-update drives freshclam, which updates the official signature database every 3hrs.
/etc/cron.d/clamav-unofficial-sigs drives the unofficial signature database every 1hr.
According to the notes in that file, it’s created by running
bash clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh --install-cron
The config files for
clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh are stored in
According to the notes in
master.conf, i need to modify
user.conf to enter my own settings, but
user.conf is part of the e-smith template system. So I’d need to modify the e-smith templates or build a custom template. How do I signal an update to the e-smith system to regenerate all the clamav-unofficial-sigs config and cron files?
Edit, I should have carried on with my thought process before submitting my post.
/usr/sbin/clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh is only able to set the minutes for the cron job for updating the unofficial signatures. (It’s on line 676 in clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh)
So the whole unofficial signature update system is hard coded to work on 1hr intervals.
It seems like a might not be able to change the update frequency unless I manually edit the clamav-unofficial-sigs cron job.
Does any one have any ideas?
