I had exactly the same issue on a machine this morning.

You don't mention which OS you are using.  So depending on where your 
ClamAV databases are; you'll need to set the following:

Monitors for ClamAV Updates = /var/clamav/*.cvd /var/clamav/*.cld 

Change /var/clamav as necessary for your set-up and restart MailScanner 
and it will start working again.
