Package: clamav-unofficial-sigs
Version: 3.7.2-2
Followup-For: Bug #784832

Dear Maintainer,

This bug has been present for almost 6 months and despite that
clamav-unofficial-sigs has seen no update for over a year. Is it still
being maintained?

So, until the package gets a much needed update, here are two
workarounds for this issue:

Option 1:

Based on the recommendations of bug 783228 of which this one is most
likely a duplicate.

cat >/etc/clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf.d/50-local-disable-si.conf <<EOF
# Workaround for clamav-unofficial-sigs bug 783228i. The SecuriteInfo
# databases have moved / are no longer available so stop fetching them.
# See:
# http://lists.clamav.net/pipermail/clamav-users/2015-April/001459.html

Option 2:
Edit /usr/share/clamav-unofficial-sigs/conf.d/00-clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf
and remove the si_dbs entries.
