Clamav: Exploit.PDF-9669

SkyHi @ Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Exploit.PDF-9669 was detected on older version of ClamAV.
Most HTML encoded email received seems to be matching on older version of ClamAV.
It seems to be a false positives matching on this signature.

Here is a temporary solution:

edit daily.hdb file
vi /usr/share/clamav/daily.inc/daily.hdb

comment this line as below

and then restart the service

This problem will be solved for temporary.

I get this solution from this thread:
The permanant solution is

update your ClamAV to 0.95.3 and update your daily.inc or daily.cvd.
