More information:

DLA 546-1 was incorrectly released before updated clamav packages were available and there were subsequent issues with the acceptance of the package (which have since been corrected). Updates are now available for all supported LTS architectures.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.

Upstream published version 0.99.2. This update updates wheezy-lts to the latest upstream release in line with the approach used for other Debian releases.

The changes are not strictly required for operation, but users of the previous version in Wheezy may not be able to make use of all current virus signatures and might get warnings.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, this has been addressed in version 0.99.2+dfsg-0+deb7u2.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these issues have been fixed in clamav version 0.99.2+dfsg-0+deb7u2
