I'm using clamavmodule. My ClamAV database:

main.cvd is up to date (version: 43, sigs: 104500, f-level: 14, builder: sven) is up to date (version: 3150, sigs: 6694, f-level: 15, builder: 

The phishing is supposed to be detected by ClamAV daily update 3140 as
Email.Phishing.RB-653 (ref:, but it's not
being detected by ClamAV through MailScanner nor by MailScanner's own phishing
protection nor by manually using ClamAV.

I'll try to contact ClamAV, but i'm posting this here so maybe someone can
figure out why it's not being detected by MailScanner phishing protection, so
next version gets better.
