Using freshclam on Debian Jessie

Using freshclam can lead to the error messages:

ERROR: /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log is locked by another process
ERROR: Problem with internal logger (UpdateLogFile = /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log).

 If you need to use freshclam on Debian Jessie, here are the commands to use it:

/etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam stop

## If you like, you may want to do this afterwards:

/etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam start
