Clam AV Version

I restarted my box recently and received this in the logwatch the following day. Anything to be concerned with?

clamd daemon 0.87.1 (OS: linux-gnu, ARCH: i386, CPU: i686)
LibClamAV Warning: ********************************************************
LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated. *** LibClamAV Warning: *** DON’T PANIC! Read *** LibClamAV Warning: ********************************************************


What a nice message eh? The short answer is no. ClamAV updates what seems like weekly and if there’s a major update we update ASAP but for the minor updates we lag a bit behind them as they update so frequently with minor updates it’s simply not worth the time to update at every minor point release.


Sorry if I’m sending this post up from some time ago, but there has been a major update in ClamAV (to version 0.92) and none of our machines have updated.


I posted a couple of months ago and still haven’t had an answer…

Is anyone reading me?:slight_smile:

Good catch, just checked their website and there is already a 93 RC out, 92 is the stable one and all my boxes are on 91

It seems iworx guys don’t spend much time on the forums now. (probably partnered with M$ and creating a Windows panel that requires 2TB RAM! :slight_smile: )

Haha tiger :). We’re here. The clamav update will be forthcoming - thanks for your patience :wink:



Any updates on this?


Is this important enough for you to update clamav?
