[clamav-users] ftp.heanet.ie mirror problem

It was recently brought to my attention that db.se.clamav.net points to 
a single IP address,, which is ftp.heanet.ie.

Sadly that mirror does not seem to accept requests from anywhere, but 
instead replies with a 403. This can be tested with:

curl -H "Host: db.local.clamav.net" -I

I would heartily recommend changing db.se.clamav.net to point to CNAME 
db.northeu.clamav.net, so problems with a single mirror would not block 
all of Sweden from updating their ClamAV installations.
