ClamAV update 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hi,

I discovered that there is some sort of ClamAV update and I know that it's not required, but I was still wondering were to get it, or when it will be made available for ClearOS.
Code:

]# service clamd restart
Stopping clamav:                                           [  OK  ]
Starting clamav: LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
LibClamAV Warning: ***  This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated.     ***
LibClamAV Warning: *** DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/support/faq ***
LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************

Code:

# yum --enablerepo=base-extras update clamd
Loading "kmod" plugin
Loading "protect-packages" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Could not find update match for clamd
No Packages marked for Update
#


Thanks,

John

@Tony,
John is referring to the message which pops up with a "service clamd restart". Your messages come from periodic signature update and go into /var/log/messages. If you restart clamd you'll see the same.

John,

Don't worry about it. The next update/upgrade of COS will likely include the update. Meanwhile, ClamAV will do its job without issues.

Yes. Engine updates (I quote):

Re:ClamAV update 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hi Tony & Peter,

Thanks for your responses.
The ClamAV update I refer too, is mentioned in the link "www.clamav.net/support/faq" and I suspect that Tony is right that it will be available with the next ClearOS update.

I just wondered if anyone else noticed this and found a way to update it manually now, because the steps for 'CentOS' are not working for me and the 'Red Hat' steps I didn't try.
I would rather not compile it myself when it will be made available in the near future by the ClearOS team.

Greetings,

John

Dude, don't break it....I would be more apt to be patient and wait for the ClearOS team to include any version upgrade that would include updates to any dependencies as well. It's as Peter said, it works quite well enough for now and the definitions get updated regularly anyway.

Re:ClamAV update 4 Years, 5 Months ago  
I have 2 systems right now, and have had this same problem in the past that once the update started being needed, the spam filter has frozen and they stop passing email unless filtering is disabled. We need a way to keep this up to date, or we need a way to make sure things keep working right regardless. It has been random to some extend, it doesn't happen the day of, and I have other systems that keep working fine.

That is odd. I have never had issues on my system. Are both the broken systems COS 5.1? And are they plain vanila?
