I just manually downloaded that package from dag.wieers.com as well as 
fr2.rpmfind.net, in both cases all is well:
$ rpm -K clamav-0.92-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm
clamav-0.92-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK

so, I guess it's either the mirror you use that's corrupted, or your 
tool (up2date or whatever it relies on) that's caching a corrupt package.
'locate clamav-0.92-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm' might shed some light.
