    So I decided to manually update ClamAV and performed the following steps :

    1) Downloaded the new file :

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector-Linux-x86_64
    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/clamav/clamav/0.98.4/clamav-0.98.4.tar.gz
    
    2) Changed the following in the install file :

    Code:
    AVV=0.98.4
    AVVOLD=0.98.1
    
    3) Changed the version :

    Code:
    echo "0.98.4" > progversion
    
    4) Then ran :

    Code:
    ./install 
    freshclam
    
    After compiling it showed :

    Code:
    root@server [~]# freshclam

    ClamAV does not appear to have been updated at all! How come? Has this been changed in some way?

    Thanks.
