I've installed ClamAV on Debian Wheezy from the offical repositories, using apt. System is up to date and I don't get any updates via apt-get upgrade, but still I get this message in the logs:

Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!

My version is:

$ clamscan -V
ClamAV 0.98.1/19186/Sun Jul 13 00:34:56 2014

On the official page:

Latest ClamAV® stable release is: 0.98.4

Looks like the official stable repos for Wheezy are not up to date. The only information I've found is official info about Debian Volatile project, which is now closed since Squeeze.

Are there any alternative repositories?
How can I keep ClamAV always up to date and be sure the system is stable?

Edit:

My /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ftp.ru.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.ru.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free



$ dpkg -l 'clamav*'

Make sure the basic wheezy repository is enabled in /etc/apt/sources.list.

It's a bit odd; newest clamav on Wheezy is not on wheezy-updates repository, but wheezy repository instead:

wheezy-update: 0.98.1+dfsg-1+deb7u4
wheezy       : 0.98.4+dfsg-0+deb7u2

If you haven't enabled any apt pinning (need not worry about it if you don't know those settings, otherwise the pinning must be undone), apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade should be fetching newest version after apt-get update.

Looks like it's enabled. I've updated the question with the sources. –  Sfisioza Jul 21 at 13:01
    
@sfisioza, maybe you want to post output of dpkg -l 'clamav*' on your post? There's some slight possibility that old deb package version might contain epoch number, which blocks installation of any newer version. –  Abel Cheung Jul 28 at 8:26
    
Added the list of packages. –  Sfisioza Aug 1 at 22:59
    
@Sfisioza You already have newest package. clamscan reporting different version highly suggests another custom installed ClamAV. Can you try running this command: type clamscan and check where this clamscan comes from? –  Abel Cheung Aug 2 at 1:09
    
clamscan is /usr/bin/clamscan. The updates came with the latest wheezy upgrades, do I don't get the warnings for now. –  Sfisioza Aug 2 at 9:55
