The version of clamav I'm using is 0.88-4. It is the latest version in sid. Normally, I would think this was the reason for the problem. However, the version of clamav hasn't been updated for a few days and my problems started in the last 24 hours or so. No, I am not running a caching nameserver. When I do a dig on the url I get the following: dig db.us.clamav.net ; <<>> DiG 9.3.2 <<>> db.us.clamav.net ;; global options: printcmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 14863 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 5, AUTHORITY: 5, ADDITIONAL: 5 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;db.us.clamav.net.
