This is a bit strange.

In my daily Logwatch emails I'm receiving the following alert:

Code:

I ran yum update and everything appears to be up to date, but then when I do a rpm -qa | grep clam I get:

Code:
[~]# rpm -qa | grep clam
cpanel-clamav-0.99.2-2.cp1156.x86_64
alt-php53-clamav-0.15.8-3.el6.x86_64

clamav-db-0.99.1-1.el6.x86_64
alt-php54-clamav-0.15.8-3.el6.x86_64
This seems a bit strange. Has anyone else encountered this?

Hello,

It looks like a third-party instance of ClamAV is installed via RPM and is conflicting with the version distributed by cPanel. Here's the output from the "rpm-qa|grep clam" command on a test server:

Code:
# rpm -qa|grep clam
cpanel-clamav-0.99.2-2.cp1156.x86_64
cpanel-clamav-virusdefs-0.99.2-2.cp1156.x86_64
You can remove the "clamav-0.99.1-1.el6.x86_64" and "clamav-db-0.99.1-1.el6.x86_64" packages on your system and then reinstall the ClamAV plugin offered by cPanel via "WHM >> Manage Plugins".

Thank you.
