I am running Debian Wheezy stable, and have clamav installed. I now get
messages like the following when I update clamav:

    WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
    WARNING: Local version: 0.97.8 Recommended version: 0.98
    DON'T PANIC! Read

I can request from wheezy backports:

    # apt-get -t wheezy-backports install clamav
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    clamav is already the newest version.

How do I update clamav to 0.98?

I have this in my sources.list:

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb [arch=amd64,i386] wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
# deb-src wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
