Hi List

Sorry I was not following that discussion...

>   Host: db.us.clamav.net
>   User-Agent: ClamAV/0.99.4 (OS: linux-gnu, ARCH: x86_64, CPU: x86_64)
>    Error 1003 Ray ID: 4349da2f33f4ae20 • 2018-07-03 13:55:52 UTC
>    Direct IP access not allowed

But this cought my attention...

db.us.clamav.net is an alias for db.us.clamav.net.cdn.cloudflare.net.

Cloudflare uses some kind of DDOS protection to detect if the visitor
might be a 'malicious bot' or a 'human' with a 'propper' webbrowser.

I fear, FreshClam does not pass the 'human' test.

I would suggest to the ClamAV team to move away from Cloudflare. Such
issues are bound to occur with CloudFlare.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
