Package: clamav-unofficial-sigs
Version: 3.7.2-2
Followup-For: Bug #774763

Dear Maintainer,

The symptoms actually changed now that the clamav.securiteinfo.com URLs
that clamav-unofficial-sigs uses are gone for good. So instead of
timing out one gets database integrity errors as described in bugs
784832 and 783228.

So the workaround is the same as for these other bugs. The better fix
probably involves upgrading the package to the newer upstream version
provided on GitHub as mentionned in bug 785130.


* 783228: clamav-unofficial-sigs: securiteinfo databases not available any more

* 784832: clamav-unofficial-sigs: Multiple error message at each execution

* 785130: Newer version available, new upstream mantainer
