sorry by my english, but I'm from Argentina, and
I don't write very well, so i hope you understand me...

My question is if can i download virus definitions of ClamWin antivirus,
like i do from the page of Norton Antivirus
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/download/pages/SP-N95.html

From this page, you can download the virus definitions so i can carry out to
my home, because i download it from my job... so i'd like to know if i can
do it with ClamWin, because i will install it on my computer at home...

Thank you and i hope you can understand me

OK people, I had the same problem I guess this guys are having, the database not being accesible. I am from Costa Rica so bare with me a sec, gonna go in spanish (for the benefit of those using google translations who speak spanish but not english) then English (for those that might be interested in this and don't speak spanish). OK, here we go!

Espa?ol:
Bueno, primero, hola. Tambien tuve problemas con bajar el DB de ClamWin. Ahora bien, este antivirus usa el mismo sistema de bases de datos que el de ClamAV (lo dice en el FAQ), y pueden encontrar la actualizacion manualmente en http://www.clamav.net/ http://www.clamav.net/ para descargarla nada mas fijense en la parte de Project News en la pagina, hay un enlace de descarga directa ahi para bajarlos archivos (http://db.local.clamav.net/main.cvd El main.cvd y http://db.local.clamav.net/daily.cvd el daily.cvd). Para configurar el ClamWin a que los baje desde un servidor argentino (que me imagino que les interesa) es cuestion de abrir el archivo ClamWin.conf (con notepad se puede) que deberia de estar en la carpeta bin dentro de la carpeta donde instalaron el ClamWin y buscar en la parte de "[Updates]" una linea que dice "dbmirror = algo", cambian ese algo por http://clamav.md5.com.ar/ y ya lo tienen para que baje de un servidor argentino. Me parece que asi sale mas facil. Una lista de servidores esta aca http://www.clamav.net/mirrors.html http://www.clamav.net/mirrors.html, asi que si alguien lo necesita para su pais particular ahi puede que salga uno. Espero que esto les haya servido, tuve que sacarlo a pie y espero ahorrarle la buscadilla a alguien. A mi el servidor no me sirvio, ni la descarga directa de la pagina de ClamWin asi que de todas formas, aca sale medio facil como ponerlo bonito. Suerte!

English:
OK, first off, hi! I had problems dl-ing the ClamWin DB files myself, so I understand that sometimes the FAQ doesn't quite pull it off, though it gives you enough information to do it yourself. It tells you ClamWin uses the same DB as ClamAV, which you can find an update for in http://www.clamav.net/ http://www.clamav.net/, it's in the Project News section, direct download links even (http://db.local.clamav.net/main.cvd The main.cvd and http://db.local.clamav.net/daily.cvd the daily.cvd). Now, some might not want to do this manually all the time, and might want ClamWin configured to download them automatically from a mirror close to you (in this case, one in Argentina). To do this look for the file ClamWin.conf (notepad can open it easily) which should be in the bin folder inside the folder where you installed ClamWin. Once you've opened it, look for "[Updates]", once you find that there should be a line saying something like "dbmirror = something" change that something to http://clamav.md5.com.ar/ and that makes your default download mirror an argentinian one. For more mirrors (not everyone is argentinian, right?) http://www.clamav.net/mirrors.html http://www.clamav.net/mirrors.html does the trick, you should be able to find one close enough to you. Anyway, I hope this helps, I kinda had to figure this out myself (not that tough to do...) but this way it saves YOU time. Good Luck y'all!
