Ever since upgrading to the latest release of MailScanner, I am seeing in my

update_virus_scanners: Found generic installed
update_virus_scanners: Running autoupdate for generic

I only list clamav in my conf file as a Virus Scanner.

What might it be autoupdating and why is it even looking for a "generic"
virus scanner if I don't specifiy I am using one?
