If you are using unofficial sigs...

Just had a report that MBL_303159 is giving mass FP's (a bad signature)

SO, if you are using MBL ones... something like this will help...

printf > ignoresigs.ign2 MBL_303159
copy the ignoresigs.ign2 file to clamav db directory and restart clamd

As the MBL ones aren't distributed or produced by me, I can't really do
much more that add an updated .ign2 file to the mirrors :(
