Clamav was updated to version 0.100.2 :

CVE-2018-15378: Vulnerability in ClamAV's MEW unpacking feature that
could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of
service (DoS) condition on an affected device. (bsc#1110723)

Make freshclam more robust against lagging signature mirrors.

On-Access 'Extra Scanning', an opt-in minor feature of OnAccess
scanning on Linux systems, has been disabled due to a known issue with
resource cleanup OnAccessExtraScanning will be re-enabled in a future
release when the issue is resolved. In the mean-time, users who
enabled the feature in clamd.conf will see a warning informing them
that the feature is not active. For details, see:

Restore exit code compatibility of freshclam with versions before
0.100.0 when the virus database is already up to date (bsc#1104457).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
