- Additional Information
CalmAV is a key control that you can establish to protect you against cyber risks. However, as with every anti malware control, you need to ensure that it is up to date. This How To helps you to determine the version of ClamAV you are running.
To find out which CalmAV you are running you can simple fire one command in your command line (assuming you running a Linux based system):
This should print something like 0.103.8.
This basically tells you, that you are currently running version 0.103.8. This knowledge is good, but is it the most current one? Well, to find out this you have multiple options, including to surf to the official ClamAV website. For standard Debian installations it’s maybe different. Indeed, as of the moment writing this how to, 0.103.9 was the most recent one, whilst the official ClamAV website already was at 0.103.10.
Update your CalmAV
Updating ClamAV is as simple as finding out the version of it! Simply fire the below command:
sudo apt-get install clamav clamav-daemon
This will print something like the below to your screen:

Check if ClamAV is running properly
In any case, it is a good idea to check whether ClamAV is running properly. You can do this by firing:
sudo systemctl status clamav-daemon
This should print something like this:
● clamav-daemon.service - Clam AntiVirus userspace daemon Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Drop-In: /etc/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service.d └─extend.conf Active: active (running) since Sun 2023-10-08 19:45:57 CEST; 5min ago Docs: man:clamd(8) man:clamd.conf(5) https://docs.clamav.net/ Process: 5951 ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir /run/clamav (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Process: 5953 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown clamav /run/clamav (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 5954 (clamd) Tasks: 2 (limit: 4915) CPU: 53.505s CGroup: /system.slice/clamav-daemon.service └─5954 /usr/sbin/clamd --foreground=true
If that’s the case, than you should be fine!
