Created a completely empty .doc file using LibreOffice on linux, and the resulting file was recognized as Win.Exploit.CVE_2016_3316-1.
This means that on our medium sized ISP, we got so many false positives from ClamAV in a few hours, that it would take several weeks for ClamAV to even find the same number of true positives in our e-mail stream.
Guess that's the end of ClamAV as an e-mail virus scanner here...
