According to http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=mailscanner there is
no mailscanner package for the current Debian stable release (wheezy).
Version 4.79.11 is for Oldstable (squeeze), and is therefore not only an old
version of Mailscanner, but also for an old version of Debian.
The Debian package maintainer appears to be simon.walter at hp-factory.de - you
might want to ask him about plans for a release for Debian stable, and/or
whether critical updates get backported.
