Well, may be I asked question incorrectly, may be even in offended way.
I didn't want it.
But I found that clamav can't detect several last viruses.
> Last I heard, the ClamAV signature team receives well over 650,000 samples a day with a very small team turning out signatures.  When you submit a sample you can choose to be notified when it has been processed, but you must subscribed to the clamav-virusdb list in order to receive it.

Well, after I submitted file, I don't see any number, so, I can't 
undrestand how to track changes.

Yes, sure. So I want to know other clamav users experience with current 
clamav database state.

Yes, sure. May be this is the way :-)

Thank you!
