ClamAV Private Database Mirror Updater Tool


cvdupdate downloads the latest ClamAV databases along with the latest database patch files.

Run this tool as often as you like, but it will only download new content if there is new content to download. If you somehow manage to download too frequently (eg: by using cvd clean all and cvd update repeatedly), then the official database server may refuse your download request, and one or more databases may go on cool-down until it's safe to try again.
