I know cPanel provides the ClamAV updates, but are there different versions for different OS? we have one OS showing an outdated installation while others are OK.

Were using MailScanner which may make a difference, a search shows we have two versions of Clam:
Code:
rpm -qa|grep clam
cpanel-clamav-virusdefs-0.101.2-1.cp1180.x86_64
clamav-0.99.4-1.el6.x86_64
clamav-db-0.99.4-1.el6.x86_64
cpanel-clamav-0.101.2-1.cp1180.x86_64
And its logwatch that's reporting an outdated version

Technically MailScanner should be able to use cPanel's ClamAV connector and you shouldn't need a separate ClamAV installation. This is noted on ConfigServer's site as well here: Installing ClamAV with MailScanner

The out of date ClamAV version is
Code:
clamav-0.99.4-1.el6.x86_64
clamav-db-0.99.4-1.el6.x86_64
As well

Thanks for all answers.
We decided to remove the older version with yum and in doing so we realised where the older version came from, dependencies to also be removed included imunify-antivirus which we tested and thought we had removed. I guess it installed an extra version of clamav.
Please mark 'Solved'
