Will there be an official update through YOU?
Yes, there will be.

@Carlos: did you read the next line? "DON'T PANIC! Read"; :-)

Certainly not!

The line resides in my /var/log/freshclam.log and is printed at boot

continue using antivir instead.

Don't bite me! ;-) I said that there were clamav updates via YOU for all
the recent versions. So I do not see any reason why there will be no YOU
update for the current version. With "no update through YOU yet" you
sure mean the current version of clamav, do you?
