This update for clamav fixes the following issues:
Clamav was updated to version 0.100.0 (bsc#1089502):

  • Add interfaces to the Prelude SIEM open source package for collecting ClamAV virus events.
  • Support libmspack internal code or as a shared object library. The internal library is the default and includes modifications to enable parsing of CAB files that do not entirely adhere to the CAB file format.
  • Link with OpenSSL 1.1.0.
  • Deprecate of the AllowSupplementaryGroups parameter statement in clamd, clamav-milter, and freshclam. Use of supplementary is now in effect by default.
  • Deprecate internal LLVM code support.
  • Compute and check PE import table hash (a.k.a. "imphash") signatures.
  • Support file property collection and analysis for MHTML files.
  • Raw scanning of PostScript files.
  • Fix clamsubmit to use the new virus and false positive submission web interface.
  • Optionally, flag files with the virus "Heuristic.Limits.Exceeded" when size limitations are exceeded.
  • Improved decoders for PDF files.
  • Reduced number of compile time warnings.
  • Improved support for C++11.
  • Improved detection of system installed libraries.
  • Fixes to ClamAV's Container system and the introduction of Intermediates for more descriptive signatures.
  • Improvements to clamd's On-Access scanning capabilities for Linux.

Re-introduce removed options as deprecated, so that clamd and freshclam don't exit on startup with an old config file
