Hello:

I am new to ClamWin, but I get this report:

---START REPORT---
Scan started: Tue Mar 14 07:18:26 2006

Is ClamWin actually telling me that the clamav-src.tar.gz is the 'virus' that was found? I first saw this error on March 7, 2006:

I searched the forum for clamav-src.tar.gz but did not get a result. Can anyone shed some light onto this 'dark corner' of my understanding?

Thanks,

This is absolutely normal clamav sources include the test signature so people can see that the AV is working. Therefore the virus name is ClamAV-Test-File
