Synopsis

clamav-unofficial-sigs [options]

Description

clamav-unofficial-sigs is a shell script that downloads, updates and tests the Sanesecurity, SecuriteInfo, MalwarePatrol, OITC, etc. third-party signature databases for ClamAV.

Options

This script follows the standard GNU command line syntax. A summary of the options is shown below.

-b
DEPRECATED - Consider using -w instead, it supports the newer ClamAV signature whitelist functionality.
Add a bypass signature entry to local.ign in order to temporarily resolve a false-positive issue with a third-party signature. The script will monitor any entries it makes to local.ign and will automatically remove bypass entries if either the original signature has been modified or removed from the database.
-c FILE-NAME
Source configuration information from a different file.
-d
Decode a hexadecimal encoded string or an individual ClamAV 3rd-party signature for viewing. This will not decode image signatures nor the official signatures.
-e
Encode a entire input string in hexadecimal for signature usage in any *.ndb database.
-f
Encode a formated input string in hexadecimal that contains spacing field '{}, (), *', without encoding the spacing fields, for signature usage in any '*.ndb' database.
-g FILE-NAME
Verify the GPG signature for a specific SaneSecurity database file. Only specify the filename as listed in the configuration file and the script will search for it in the work directory.
-h
Print the script help and usage information.
-i
Print system and script configuration information.
-m
Make a hexadecimal signature database file (*.ndb) from a clear text ascii file. Provides support for both full and formatted signatures. Additional information is provided when using the flag.
-r
Remove the clamav-unofficial-sigs script and all of its associated files, databases and work directories from the system.
-s FILE-NAME
Test the integrity of a third-party signature database with clamscan. Only specify the filename as listed in the configuration file and the script will search for it in the work directory.
-t
If HAM directory scanning is enabled in the script's configuration file, then output the names of any third-party signatures that triggered during the HAM directory scan.
-v
Print the script version and date information.
-w
Adds a signature whitelist entry in the newer ClamAV IGN2 format to 'my-whitelist.ign2' in order to temporarily resolve a false-positive issue with a specific third-party signature. Script added whitelist entries will automatically be removed if the original signature is either modified or removed from the third-party signature database.
