    The update of clamav released as DLA 1953-1 led to permission issues on /var/run/clamav. This caused several users to experience issues restarting the clamav daemon. This regression is caused by a mistakenly backported patch from the stretch package, upon which this update was based.

    Version        : 0.101.4+dfsg-0+deb8u2

    The update of clamav released as DLA 1953-1 led to permission issues on
    /var/run/clamav. This caused several users to experience issues restarting the
    clamav daemon. This regression is caused by a mistakenly backported patch from
    the stretch package, upon which this update was based.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.101.4+dfsg-0+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.
