    To clarify:

    Fedora Core is no longer supported for new installations of cPanel/WHM.

    Ubuntu is not supported by cPanel at all.

    The cPanel/WHM update mechanism will update ClamAV.

    Email scanning by ClamAV is automatic and individual users can scan their web space for viruses if they desire by clicking the icon for ClamAV in their cPanel interface.

    So not to start another topic, I have a related question:
    by default, Cpanel's clamav is scanning both incoming and outgoing e-mails?
    I ask because in my situation, only incoming e-mail are scanned.

    Thank you

    Outbound emails are not scanned by ClamAv.

    Only inbound email is scanned in a cPanel/WHM environment.

    If your installation of ClamAV is unable to detect contemporary viruses, you may want to ensure that it is successfully updating its virus database periodically.

    You may want to talk to the folks at ClamAV about your findings. Perhaps they can use the details of your findings to improve their virus signatures.
