The Debian LTS is mostly managed by a small subset of Debian people that have 
decided to focus on it.  They have published clamav updates, but are no doubt 
looking for help.  See https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Development .

For releases supported by the Debian project, here's what's available right 

 clamav | 0.98.5+dfsg-0+deb7u2 | wheezy 
 clamav | 0.98.6+dfsg-0+deb7u1 | wheezy-p-u 
clamav | 0.98.6+dfsg-0+deb7u1 | wheezy-updates
 clamav | 0.98.6+dfsg-1        | jessie  
 clamav | 0.98.6+dfsg-1        | sid        

(for those not up to speed on Debian specifics, what that means is the most 
current clamav release is available for all supported Debian releases)
