The following is safebrowsing’s test host name, malware.testing.google[.]test, and using google’s test page


shows that it is listed.

I have enabled safebrowsing in freshclam.cong and checked that safebrowsing.cvd has been downloaded and is current.

I checked clamav using clamscan on a file containing EICAR signature and it detects. I also check clamd using INSTREAM and piped an EICAR signature to clamd and it responded "Eicar-Test-Signature FOUND”

I then created a file containing

<a href=http://malware.testing.google[.]test/>http://malware.testing.google[.]test/</a>

and ran it through clamav:

clamscan -v googlesafebrowsingtest.txt

----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
Known viruses: 5826858
Engine version: 0.99
Scanned directories: 0
Scanned files: 1
Infected files: 0
Data scanned: 0.00 MB
Data read: 0.00 MB (ratio 0.00:1)
Time: 10.639 sec (0 m 10 s)

and got no detects. I also checked with INSTREAM and nada.

Any help is appreciated to help me get this going.
