ClamAV: freshclam error

I will running some manual freshclam updates and encounter this slight problem.

ERROR: Problem with internal logger (UpdateLogFile = /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log).

The quick solution: Kill all freshclam process and run it manually again.

[tanfwc:/root]# killall freshclam
[tanfwc:/root]# freshclam
