Hello Luca,

If I remember well, clamsubmit only works since versions 0.100.x of 
ClamAV. It seems you are still using version 0.99.4.

> Question 1 - Is this process correct to send samples?

Yes it it.

> Question 2 - How much time is required to validate a sample and get 
> the A/V db updated? Days? Months?

Depending of many things on ClamAV team side, it can take just a few 
hours, or days, or ... never.

If you expect 100% detection, please use at least the last version of 
And some 3rd party signatures can help to get full detection :
