Default AV in Ubuntu/ispconfig

Have newly installed Ubuntu server 10.04 and ISPConfig.
Now the system (tab Monitor >Server State >Show Overview)tells me:
"Your virus protection is OUTDATED !"
Which AV has been installed and how to update ?
Is there anybody who could tell me that ?

Thats ok, no need to update anything. Just install ubuntu updates regularily by running the command "apt-get -u upgrade". The virus protection is not outdated, the message should read "there is a new software version of clamav available. It will be released by your Linux distributor when it is stable. There is no need for any further actions. Your virus protection is working properly and the antivirus signatures are up to date.". The only relevant message in the log is if the signature download succeeded or not. The "Outdated ..." message can be ignored. This has been explained quite a few times in the forum.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
