Default ClamAV question

Howdy,

I noticed in my log files that the ClamAV installation is apparently out of date. I checked via Yum for an update and it says that Clam is not installed so I'm guessing that this is a non standard installation through ISPC2.

How do I update it without breaking the system?

Here's the appropriate snips:

Code:

What's your ISPConfig and ClamAV version?

If you see the warning WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED! - this sounds more dramatic than it actually is, and it is usually not necessary to take any action. This just means that a newer ClamAV version is available than the one that is installed - your current version is still ok. It does not mean that the virus signature database is not up to date - it actually is, and protection is still guaranteed.

Thank you Falko, I understand that it is still working. I was wondering how to upgrade/update it though as a matter of principle because I hate not having control over processes on my server.

Yum provides a powerful tool to keep system software up to date and having to go around the corner so to speak to update packages is a bit more work, but it is ok...only if I don't know how to go around that corner to update the packages it becomes rather unsettling.

That's 2.2.37, coming with ClamAV 0.96.1. As I said in post #2, there's nothing to worry about. Just wait for the next ISPConfig 2 release, it will come with the latest ClamAV version.
