Set Up Freshclam

For ClamAV to work properly, both the ClamAV engine and the ClamAV Virus Database (CVD) must be kept up to date.

Freshclam should perform these updates automatically. Instructions for setting up Freshclam can be found in the ClamAV Manual or in the documentation section.
If your network is segmented or the end hosts are unable to reach the Internet, you should investigate setting up a private local mirror. If this is not viable, you may use these direct download links:  main.cvd | daily.cvd | bytecode.cvd
