[kwlug-disc] some trivial clamav questions

   sitting here with a very old debian 4.0 system in front of me and,  
being a rookie WRT to clamav, some easy questions:

1) ... numerous diagnostics of the form "<filename> Oversized.Zip  
FOUND".  the filenames are typically of the form *.EXE, *.zip or *.Zip  
(but files of the form *.ZIP are *not* flagged).  i'm assuming there's  
a wildcard file somewhere to explicitly list which files are to be  
flagged, yes?  (and this is apparently an old version of clamav, to  
the point where the report opens with:

   LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated.

so i figure i can update that as well.)

   thoughts?
