Is clamav out of business, have they stopped making updates? Why doesn't the program blacklist that mirror and use another, silently?


I see in the configuration file this:

# Uncomment the following line and replace XY with your country
# code. See http://www.iana.org/cctld/cctld-whois.htm for the full list.
#DatabaseMirror db.XY.clamav.net

So I search that iana thing, and find EU is for Europe. I try:

DatabaseMirror db.EU.clamav.net


and now I get:

Feb 14 20:28:22 nimrodel freshclam[12084]: getpatch: Can't download
daily-8986.cdiff from db.EU.clamav.net
Feb 14 20:28:22 nimrodel freshclam[12084]: Incremental update failed, trying to
download daily.cvd
Feb 14 20:28:22 nimrodel freshclam[12084]: Can't get information about
db.EU.clamav.net: Name or service not known
Feb 14 20:28:22 nimrodel freshclam[12084]: Can't download daily.cvd from
db.EU.clamav.net


Good grief! Not very reasuring, how this people handle their mirrors... :-(
