Upgrade to ClamAV 0.91.2.

The ClamAV source RPM is available from the Kolab download mirrors as:

A binary RPM for Kolab Server 2.1.0 (ix86 Debian GNU/Linux Sarge) is available:

All other server versions: Please build from the src.rpm.

The mirrors are listed on http://kolab.org/mirrors.html
While the mirrors are catching up, you can also get the package via rsync:
# rsync -tvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/kolab/server/security-updates/20070821/clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.src.rpm .
# rsync -tvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/kolab/server/security-updates/20070821/clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.ix86-debian3.1-kolab.rpm .

MD5 sums:
99f228b485e05b7e84990a3da5eaf946  clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.src.rpm
afd3608730b39e0b5aa66585226d822a  clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.ix86-debian3.1-kolab.rpm

The package can be installed on your Kolab Server with

# /kolab/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.src.rpm
# /kolab/bin/openpkg rpm \
  -Uvh /kolab/RPM/PKG/clamav-0.91.2-20070821_kolab.<ARCH>-<OS>-kolab.rpm
# rm /kolab/etc/clamav/clamd.conf.rpmsave
# /kolab/bin/openpkg rc clamav restart
# su - kolab-r
$ freshclam

For Kolab Server 2.0.4 you have to copy the new /kolab/etc/clamav/clamd.conf
to /kolab/etc/kolab/templates/clamd.conf.template so it will not be
overwritten by kolabconf. Do NOT copy this file with Kolab Server 2.1 or 2.2!
