[Bug 1161012] Re: Clamav package adds proxy to config on install and update

I can reproduce this in cosmic *if* the http_proxy and ftp_proxy env
vars are set at clamav-freshclam install time, i.e., when I do "apt
install clamav-freshclam". Then I get them set in
/etc/clamav/freshclam.conf, and this is done by clamav-freshclam's
postinst script.

If these vars are being set to point at a proxy that is not a general
proxy, then I don't think freshclam is at fault here. It is expected
that http_proxy/ftp_proxy point to a proxy that works for the general

I'll mark this bug as incomplete, because it does seem like the right
approach is being taken. Please comment if people affected by this think
