Package              : clamav
Version              : 0.98.1+dfsg-1+deb6u3
Importance           : medium

The clamav update published as SUA 48-1 introduced a regression in the
management of configuration which could lead to invalid configuration
files being generated.  This update resolves that regression.

For reference, the original text from SUA 48-1 was:

Upstream published version 0.98.1.

This is a mostly a bugfix release. The changes are not strictly required
for operation, but users of the previous version in Squeeze may not be
able to make use of all current virus signatures and might get warnings.

The bug fixes that are part of this release resolve issues with
processing some files. If you use clamav, we highly recommend you
upgrade to this version.

This release also adds the capability to perform on-access scanning
using fanotify in clamav-daemon. This is controlled by the ScanOnAccess
configuration option and defaults to off. See the installed clamav
documentation for details.
