This page describes what to do in case of an Icinga alert. For more information you could search the govuk-puppet repo for the source of the alert

ClamAV definitions out of date

This could be because of a number of reasons. Check that the database is up to date by calling the freshclam command directly with verbose:

fab $environment -H backend-1 sdo:'freshclam -v'

If it reports the virus databases are up to date then you may need to check the ClamAV virusdb archive to investigate.

If it can’t seem to download the updated definition files, with errors such as Ignoring mirror (due to previous errors), it could be that all the mirrors available have been blacklisted. You can reset the blacklisted mirrors by deleting the file that stores them: sudo rm /var/lib/clamav/mirrors.dat. After doing this running sudo freshclam -v may well work again.
