It used to be that


were valid configuration options. That's been changed. It needs to be

   AllowSupplementaryGroups yes
   FixStaleSocket yes

where "yes" can also be "no," depending on your preference.

After updating the new clamav.config. (I have re-installed the clamav) I
face a problem that it uses 85 to 100 of the CPU and it result in failure of
saslauthd checking with following error.

May 17 10:08:06 mail pop3[27952]: badlogin: [] plaintext d.walsh
SASL(-13): authentication failure: checkpass failed

this error happens when about 5 no of CLAMSCAN runs  (viewed with TOP
command) and it stops when I remove the content filter in postfix.

is there any way we can reduce the CPU usage by clamscan so that other
process will get some room to execute?  I had used the default setting in
clamd.conf except user as  amavis. At least some guidance or suggestions?

best regards
