For those running and managing websites should know about the potential security threats out there which can ruin your business. Malwares or viruses as we call it is one of the most sort out threats out there, For those of who already have a website compromised, “Maldet” is your friend which can help you scan the files for infections.
Some of the customers have often complained about Maldet showing error
“LibClamAV Error : No supported database files found”
when restarting Maldet. So I thought putting a blog out here would help.
Why this happened?
You are getting this error because you don’t have any virus database definitions under /var/clamav directory.
How to fix it?
First, we will kill all the Clam AV update process, just in case if any are running and doesn’t conflict our operation. To kill them run following command.
Now we can start the update process freshly. Run the following command.
Now that the update is complete you can go ahead and start Clam AV and there won’t be any issue. Hope this blog is helpful to you 🙂
