Since last couple of days all the cpanel servers are now giving the Clamav installation outdated.

I am getting messages like this in all the servers :

How to upgrade the new updated Clamav here in cPanel server without breaking anything ? I have checked the clamav.net and it seems a new version of clamav has been released and this through the above message as a result.

you do not have to do anything. cPanel will get it integrated into their updates soon.

Chirpy posted this a while back.

You can upgrade ClamAV using:

wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.88.3.tar.gz
tar -xzf clamav-*
cd clamav-*
./configure --disable-zlib-vcheck
make
make install
replace "Example" "#Example" -- /usr/local/etc/freshclam.conf
replace "Example" "#Example" -- /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
freshclam
cd ..
/bin/rm -Rf clamav-*
Edited for latest release link.

Thanks a lot for the info. It fixed my issue before cPanel reacts to address this.

Had done that way back as soon as this problem was found. Since cPanel is yet to update the clamav at there download servers and scripts, it didnt fix the issue.

Thanks anyways.
