mcafee dat corrupted? (was: Virus scan attack)



mcafee dat corrupted? (was: Virus scan attack)

I'm using mcafee (linux) uvscan v4.1.60 with 4367 DAT, uvscan
dumps core even on execution of `uvscan --version`
(I'm using uvscan in smtp content-filtering).

Suspected of corrupted file transfer, I try to download the 
DAT file again, but seems the DAT is corrupted from the source
(ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/).

Revert back to 4366 and it runs ok.
