I got every day a cron message which tells me:

Looks like one source is no longer valid and should be fixed or removed

To remove the source: `rm /etc/clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf.d/si-dbs.conf`

@jonhattan
That command doesn't work, the file doesn't exist! The only thing on that path is a README file.

Same problem here and, as ferncasado mentioned, /etc/clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf.d/si-dbs.conf does not exist.

For those that don't have /etc/clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf.d/si-dbs.conf, see if /usr/share/clamav-unofficial-sigs/conf.d/00-clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf exists and then try commenting out (or removing) the following.

# ========================
# SecuriteInfo Database(s)
# ========================
# Add or remove database file names between quote marks as needed. To

si_dbs="

   securiteinfo.hdb
   securiteinfobat.hdb

# Since the SecuriteInfo databases are only updated a few time each
# month, set a time interval to do database update checks.
si_update_hours="4" # Default is 4 hours (6 update checks daily).

Solved the problem for me. I may just remove the package though and go with the github version/option https://github.com/extremeshok/clamav-unofficial-sigs
