Clam AV service in eScan / MailScan / WebScan for Linux distributions stops or does not start with below error messages in the logs:
ERROR: Malformed database in /var/MicroWorld/var/log/mwcavd.log
and status of mwcav shows as mwcavd dead but subsys locked. To check the status of mwcav, run the below command from the terminal # /etc/init.d/mwcav status
This error is observed after downloading the latest Clam AV updates. Though, even when Clam AV stops, it does not affect in the overall functioning of the MicroWorld's product for Linux distribution, as MicroWorld's own AV engine will be performing the task.
