Question regarding password-protected and clamavmodule

I just upgraded a server to mailscanner-4.38.10-1 and I started getting
this log message.

 "Allow Password-Protected Archives" should be set to just yes or no
when using clamavmodule virus scanner

I do have a ruleset for this which I thought was ok? Apparently not.
What are my options if this can not be done in clamavmodule. I switch to
clamavmodule back sometime before 4.34 to handle the text scanning error
is it time to switch back to clamd?
