Update the Clam antivirus engine virus definitions to be able to detect the latest threats.

This can be easily accomplished by running the command sudo freshclam. It will instantly contact the Clam servers and download the latest definitions. The initial download will take a while as the definitions are newly downloaded.

$ sudo freshclam
