       clamav-unofficial-sigs - Download, test, and install third-party ClamAV
       signature databases.


       clamav-unofficial-sigs [options]


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


       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

       -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

       -r     Remove   the   clamav-unofficial-sigs  script  and  all  of  its
              associated  files,  databases  and  work  directories  from  the

       -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

       -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.
