Segmentation fault on liblnxfv for mwg-antimalware

It has been a couple of days now, that users sometimes get an Anti-Malware engine failure. The issue occurs on different nodes of a farm. The /var/log/messages states the following:

Mar 5 09:14:42 telmcf007rm001 kernel: [2649110.553917] mwg-antimalware[23565]: segfault at 0 ip 00000000ec714a62 sp 00000000f4052700 error 4 in[ec5ec000+56b000]

Does anybody know of a current corrupt anti-malware engine?

We deactivetad the AntiMalware. We have 2 nodes, but only one display the error. Users receive the message Antimalware overloaded.

Does Mcafee has an answer for that.
