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:
[email protected] [~]# freshclam

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

Thanks.
