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


       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


       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

       -f     Encode  a formated input string in hexadecimal that contains spacing field '{}, (),
              *', without encoding the  spacing  fields,  for  signature  usage  in  any  '*.ndb'

       -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.
