    Dear all ISPConfig v3.2 Users,
    Do you think that clamav-unofficial-sigs is worthy of deployment?
    https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs
    It loads many signatures besides the regular clamav signature and maldetect signatures. It increases the whole ISPConfig server's load if you runs clamav daemon. It even overloads my 4GB RAM VPS.

    Please give your precious opinions. :rolleyes:

    The signatures you get with clamav "out of the box" have been extremely limited in my experience, and the unofficial signatures are the first thing I would add to improve that. Note the Debian package was out of date and produced errors with sane-security sources last I knew, so you may be better off installing right from GitHub.

    Thank you Jesse,
    Every time, I install through their github.
    The biggest problem is - the overall signature content is very big. It even forces my 4GB VPS to use swap disk and slows down the whole system.

    What is your ISPConfig system's RAM amount? Any trick to optimise the overall clamav with unofficial signatures?

    Most mail server nodes are 16G, though I do have one all-in-one panel with only 12G, but it could use a little more (monit restarts various services for memory use on occasion, including clamd at 2.5G).

  5. I've only 1 gig ram in my vps and ispconfig with clamav is working fine.

    Yes, yours is running but with the help of huge swap disk - very slow. :D
