Suggestion for /usr/lib/MailScanner/mcafee-autoupdate

I have just noticed that one of my machines has not updated its McAfee Dat Files for 7 weeks.

The reason for this was that "/usr/lib/MailScanner/mcafee-autoupdate" tries to do this:

wget --tries=1 --waitretry=300 --passive-ftp

It was returning a file dated 16th April 2009.  The reason for this was that the machine was going through a proxy server.

Is it possible to put "--no-cache" onto the wget command to avoid this in future?

Thanks, Ajos1
