Oooh, that's bad... Look at
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.mail.virus.mailscanner/34158 (gmane is
your friend when in need of a good archive:-), where you'll see some
info on how to determine if MS is using the severely outdated clamav,
or not... Mainly look at the last column in virus.scanners.conf for
clamav, and compare that to the installed versions...
