Updating portage tree
The Ubuntu backports repository will contain the newest clamav version that has been at least lightly tested to work with that version.
These packages can be installed by enabling the backports repository on your system.
If you've used Windows or Mac OS, you'd also know that their interfaces cannot be replaced easily.
With Linux, the opposite is true -- you are free to choose from a huge selection of GUIs.
The package maintainers can be reached at clamav-devel at lists.alith. Clam AV is included in the open Su SE distribution and in Novell’s Su SE Linux Enterprise products.
As these packages have to go through QA, it usually takes some time for a new Clam AV source release to appear as an official RPM.
For those who want the newest version, packages are available from the security project in the open Su SE Build Service. Open CSW is a community software project for Solaris 8 on both Sparc and x86.
This unique combination of technologies allows for a highly effective approach to today’s fast moving malware threats.
There are two classes of clamav packages available for Ubuntu users: The released set (release, *-updates, and *-security) are patched for security updates.
