Hello!

I have had freshclam mangle the DB a number of times, and when it does, clamd will freak out until the next successful DB update fixes things, which may be several hours. For this reason, I do not run clamd as a service, but as a process in a window which is started with a script that loops. When clamd resets for a new (mangled) DB, the script will delete and refresh all of the DB's and then restart clamd. A side benefit is that you can also pull up the clamd windows to see its output.


Take care!

John

When I set up Clam earlier today, I was able to run it from the command line
and test it against an EICAR file, get a response, etc.  I saw it fail
against the bad database and succeed when properly configured.  I imagine
that I could easily schedule that, pipe the results to a text file and
schedule a bot to read it regularly and e-mail me if the test fails.  That
would let me know if FreshClam ever mangled the database.



Is there a way we could do the same with Declude and the Internal AVG
scanner / database?



Is there some way to execute it from a command line, point it at EICAR and
get a parse-able result?



That could be awfully handy.

Reenable Virus Protection!



Declude Users - take note!



CommTouch/Zerohous does a good job, but does not catch all known viruses
(some days I have 5 or 6 DIFFERENT viruses/trojans sneaking by, some to
multiple users each!), it's absolutely imperative that AVG works if you
don't have additional scanners set up.



Unfortunately, AVG had stopped working (no one has said for how many weeks
or possible months it has not worked). I have confirmed that AVG is now
working again after I upgraded from 4.10.42-A to 4.10.48. So - I recommend
all Declude users get on top of this quickly!



(PS: This is the second time AVG has gone AWOL inside of Declude for
extended periods of times - and it's never discovered until I finally
insist. Naturally, I have zero confidence in the built-in scanner. It's
unreliable and there is no notification whenever it stops working.)
