Hi Tilman,

Sorry no one has responded to you yet.  I hate seeing questions go unanswered, but I truthfully don't know the answer.

Did you find a solution?

Can't allocate RWX Memory: Permission denied

I found an old Red Hat Bugzilla entry (Bug 1172774) for Fedora 21 which
was closed as fixed by an selinux-policy update on 2015-08-14.
However the systems in question have been running for two years with
that configuration.

This is RHEL6 with the ClamAV packages from EPEL:


Why would freshclam suddenly trigger that message now?
