Package: clamav-milter
Version: 0.97.2+dfsg-1~squeeze1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

It seems no longer possible to set permissions of the milter socket:

  root at domine:/var/spool/postfix/clamav# grep Milter /etc/clamav/clamav-milter.conf
  MilterSocket /var/spool/postfix/clamav/clamav-milter.ctl
  MilterSocketGroup postfix
  MilterSocketMode 660
  root at domine:/var/spool/postfix/clamav# /etc/init.d/clamav-milter restart
  Stopping Sendmail milter plugin for ClamAV: clamav-milter.
  Starting Sendmail milter plugin for ClamAV: clamav-milter.
  root at domine:/var/spool/postfix/clamav# ls -l
  total 0
  s--------- 1 clamav clamav 0 Aug  6 19:20 clamav-milter.ctl

If I uncomment the RWGROUP in /etc/default/clamav-milter, then I get

  s----w---- 1 clamav postfix 0 Aug  6 19:21 clamav-milter.ctl

This is because the init.d script now does chgrp and chmod g+w, but
not more.

That this is configurable in both places is subject of #636877.

I think the bug is in clamav-milter, hence tagging this upstream.
