Hi, Freddie and the others,

1. My Debian is a Etch 4.0
2. My sources.list file has
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile etch/volatile main
contrib non-free

3. That's my dpkg -l | grep clam output
ii clamav 0.93~dfsg-volatile1
anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line i
ii clamav-base 0.95.3+dfsg-1~volatile1~etch2
anti-virus utility for Unix - base package
ii clamav-daemon 0.93~dfsg-volatile1
anti-virus utility for Unix - scanner daemon
ii clamav-freshclam 0.93~dfsg-volatile1
anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database
ii libclamav4 0.93~dfsg-volatile1
anti-virus utility for Unix - library

What should I do to upgrade my Clamav? Do I need to backup something
from Clamav before?

Hugs,
