Browsing the source, I see that clamd also sets this by default, and would even emit a log message:

"Phishing: Checking all URLs, regardless of domain (FP prone).\n"

if overridden by the PhishingScanURLs option in clamd.conf.

So am I correct in assuming that clamd isn't vulnerable as long as that warning message does not appear in the log, and that users of either clamd or clamscan can upgrade without fear?
