    Package        : clamav
    
    Security support for clamav, an anti-virus utility for Unix, has been
    discontinued for the stable distribution (lenny) and the oldstable
    distribution (etch). Clamav Upstream has stopped supporting the
    releases in etch and lenny. Also, it is not easily possible to receive
    signature updates for the virus scanner with our released versions
    anymore. We recommend that all clamav users consider switching to the
    version in debian-volatile, which receives regular updates and security
    support on a best effort basis.
