Hallo, clamav-users,

I've tried today and also last week to submit a file which contains a  
virus; it's named "t-online.ace".
Before this try I had submitted many other "virulent" files without any  

With the above mentioned file I get the answer


ClamAV Virus Database


Please only submit ZIP archives encrypted with password virus.

Please correct the above errors and retry. Thank you for helping the ClamAV project.


"jotti.org" and "virustotal.com" have allowed the upload, both tell some  
virus alerts.

How can I upload this file for the database of ClamAV?

Should I "re-zip" it with the proposed password "virus"? I'd prefer if  
ClamAV can detect the original "*.ace" file ...

Viele Gruesse!
