How do I ignore/whitelist a ClamAV signature?

Creating a ignore/whitelist file

Change Directory into the location where your ClamAV databases are stored. Create a file called whitelist.ign2, for example, like this:

touch whitelist.ign2

Ignore individual signatures

Place the signatures you’d like to ignore, each on it’s own line, within the file whitelist.ign2.

For example:

Signature.Ignore-1

Signature.Ignore-2
