You are admitting that on a ClamAV mail list?

From the ClamAV Virus Database documentation <http://www.clamav.net/doc/cvd.html>:

> 	• How many times per hour shall I run freshclam?
> You can check for database update as often as 4 times per hour provided that you have the following options in freshclam.conf: DNSDatabaseInfo current.cvd.clamav.netDatabaseMirror db.XY.clamav.net DatabaseMirror database.clamav.net 
> Replace XY with your country code. If you don’t have that option, then you must stick with 1 check per hour.
