ACK on this guys.  A lot of the guys are on the way to Vegas, or will be tomorrow.  I’ve forwarded this email to the correct people in order to get things fixed.

I’ll respond in support of this.  Several ClamXav users in Sweden have also been complaining about reliability over the past month or so which have required periodic workarounds.

It was recently brought to my attention that db.se.clamav.net<http://db.se.clamav.net> points to a single IP address, 193.1.193.64, which is ftp.heanet.ie<http://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<http://db.local.clamav.net>" -I http://193.1.193.64/daily-20760.cdiff

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