Updating clamav

See the below screen shot taken from Fedora 23, I’m using latest version of Clam AV 0.99.

See the below screen shot taken from Ubuntu 15.10, I’m using latest version of Clam AV 0.98.7.

If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.

If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.

I need to find it because I need to know what version it is and to be able to set it up and control it. Now on the splash screen it tells me that the antivirus database is too old and that I need to update it. Also, I searched for *clam*, *clamav*, *Clam* and *Clamav* and the searches came up with no results.

Clam AV has official support in Ubuntu for packages installed from the Main repository. In case you are recursively scanning the whole /home folder (or even the whole system) from a terminal emulator on your GUI, possibly there will be lots of files.

In that case, as the output you will get is not infinite, it probably will help to generate a report containing the paths to all infected files.
