Hi,

This is not critical error, it simply means that database of clamav that 
contains definition information has corrupted. there are more than one 
way to fix it.
1.) yum remove clam clamav-db* followed by yum install clamav-db
2.) find & move the following files to temp location run freshclam.
daily.cvd main.cld, mirrors.dat

Thanks
