I was about to write something along these lines when Mr. Skoll's post
arrived. The very idea of a bytecode interpreter in ClamAV gives me
the creeps. It sounds like a whole bunch of vulnerabilities waiting
to happen. I'd like to add my voice to those who want an easy way to
disable it - I can see nothing in the clamd.conf man page for 0.96-rc1
which offers any solace.
In the same man page there are a couple of small formatting errors in
the bold attributes for LocalSocketGroup and LocalSocketMode.
