    ClamAV 0.102.0 has been released (but will it work?)

    Greetings All,

    ClamAV 0.102.0 has been released.  The release notes contain the following statement:

    "The On-Access Scanning feature has been migrated out of clamd and into a brand new utility named clamonacc. This utility is similar to clamdscan and clamav-milter in that it acts as a client to clamd. This separation from clamd means that clamd no longer needs to run with root privileges while scanning potentially malicious files. Instead, clamd may drop privileges to run under an account that does not have super-user."

    Anyone know whether this is cause for concern?

    Details of the release are here:  https://blog.clamav.net/2019/10/clamav-01020-has-been-released.html

    Hello,

    I contacted some days ago Lukas Gebauer about the compatibility of ClamAV new version and Mercury/ClamWall. Hereafter the answer :

    Not tested yet, however I not see any affecting change in release
    notes. It can work until ClamD socket interface is the same.

    Those using ClamAV in Mercury don't use any 'on-access' scanning features so it should not be an issue.
