I know that when ClamAV introduced the clamonacc utility in 0.102.0 ClamAV 0.102.0 has been released , it posed an issue of how the cPanel development team would approach adapting it into cPanel's ClamAV , but it's been a year now since 0.102.0 released so I'm just wondering if there's been any progress on that front.

I have 49 23 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/freshclam --quiet --no-warnings in my crontab and my ClamAV is still stuck at:
cpanel-clamav-virusdefs-0.101.5-5.cp1186.x86_64
cpanel-clamav-0.101.5-5.cp1186.x86_64
cpanel-perl-530-File-Scan-ClamAV-1.95-1.cp1186.noarch

And so of course I'm getting the logwatch messages:
WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.101.5 Recommended version: 0.102.4

I understand big changes take time, but with the ever-increasing cyber threats / site / server attacks I'm just really hoping that this is still on cPanel's team radar, as we could all really benefit from the many bug fixes, vulnerability fixes, and enhancements of the newer versions. (In fact, 0.103.0 just released this month, but I'd be thrilled to even just have 0.102.4 instead the very outdated 0.101.5)

Thanks for any consideration on this from the cPanel team.

I see that there is a case for this but it does not have any updates, I know that it was added to a backlog but because of the work it's going to take to make the changes the team has not been able to add it into development cycle yet.
