clamd 0.94.2-3 is available which adds in checks to make sure database files are not of zero length. This has occured with some third party clamav signature providers and this update will prevent this case from occuring, customers should install this update immediately.

Should this script be run as a cron to keep the system up to date?

/usr/bin/clamav_updater.sh

There is already an /etc/cron.daily/freshclam which itself launches /usr/bin/clamav_updater.sh, so running it separately is not needed.

Errr...thinking about this, I'm wondering if the Announcements topics be changed to be read-only? I'm not bothered either way, but it might keep things neater.
