cPanel: This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated.

If you have cPanel come with ClamAV, and if you got this warning when running clamscan,

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LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated.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: ***********************************************************

You may consider to upgrade your ClamAV version and it’s definition.

To upgrade the ClamAV,
1. Download the latest stable source from http://www.clamav.net/download/sources.
2. Extract the file, (I assume ClamAV 0.97.3 as current latest version)

tar -zxfv clamav-0.97.3.tar.gz

3. Compile the following command,

cd clamav-0.97.3
if [ -d "/usr/lib64" ]; then libdir="--libdir=/usr/lib64" ; fi ; ./configure --prefix=/usr $libdir --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-ipv6 --disable-zlib-vcheck
make
make install

To update the database definition,
