There appears to be some confusion over the 2 patches I recently issued,
one for support of the new version of Antivir and one for better RAR
support for a very recent RAR format with ClamAV.
Attached to this message is a patch file for SweepViruses.pm which applies
When you apply the patch, it may say the one of the patches is already
applied, in which case skip that one and just apply the other one.
patch < SweepViruses.pm.clam-antivir.patch
Then completely stop and restart MailScanner.
Please let me know if
1) This patch makes Clam spot the new RAR format properly
2) Support for the new Antivir now works properly.

You will still get some of this output, but it should detect the virus in
the RAR file. You will need to have told the clamav-wrapper script to use
the external unrar command.
