For an up-to-date product list, see http://www.openantivirus.org/


2 Setting up the commandline option
I advise you to look at the commandline parameters for the scanner(s) you use
with AMaViS. Each scanner has its own section at the beginning of the scanmails
script and the commandline options can be set with <product_name>_cmdl, i.e.
antvir_cmdl. Please read the documentation of your antivirus software
carefully and add (or remove) specific options.
If an antivirus product provides the functionally to scan inside (run-time)
compressed files (i.e. Diet, LzExe, PkLite, UPX) and archived files
(i.e. PkZIP, RAR), I would advise to switch this on, if it's not on by default.

3 Antivirus product information
3.1 Specific Antivirus product information
3.1.1 How to use Kaspersky Anti-Virus AVPDaemon

Two possible setups exist:
a) AVPDaemon and AVPDaemonClient (in new package renamed to AvpDaemonTst)
switch into AVPDaemon/DaemonClients and compile AvpDaemonClient.cpp (new
location seems to be Sample) with a simple "make". Then copy this file to
the location where AVPDaemon is installed (i.e. /usr/local/avp or /opt/AVP).
Run configure, make and make install.

b) AVPDaemon alone (AVPDaemon works in daemon mode and client mode)
symlink AvpDaemonClient to AvpDaemon, as configure searches for AvpDaemonClient
(and AvpDaemonTst). In amavis/av/avpdc, change the line

 $output = `$avpdc $TEMPDIR/parts`;

to

 $output = `$avpdc -o{$TEMPDIR/parts/}`;

run ./configure, make and make install.
Well, AVPDaemon (in client mode) shows no output and it can not be switched
to verbose mode. Therefore setup a) is the one I currently recommend,
otherwise your logfiles don't show which file(s) is/are infected.

NOTE: AvpDaemon must be running as a daemon, so it should be started at
boot time via an init script (or whatver) as <path>/AvpDaemon -* /var/amavis

3.1.2 Kaspersky Anti-Virus
AvpLinx fills the log with a lot of trash because of a simple progress
bar by loading the AVC files.
If you do not want to have "log flooding", you may set

LongStrings=Yes

in file defUnix.prf, section Options. This will reduce the output when
AvpLinux is loading the AVC files.

3.1.3 Virus Buster (Daemon + Client)
Please keep in mind the VirusBuster Daemon has to run under the same
user id AMaViS runs as. Moreover, VirusBuster returns 3 for an infection
(which is not in sync with the man page).

3.1.4 Sophie / Trophie
By default, Sophie/Trophie creates a socket in /var/run, owned by root, group
uucp (read/writeable by owner and group). As AMaViS runs as user amavis,
it cannot connect to the socket. Please change the group
accordingly in sophie.h/trophie.h and re-compile.
If Sophie/Trophie is installed, but configure doesn't detect it, you need
to upgrade to version 1.15/1.03, resp., or better.

3.1.5 GeCAD RAV AntiVirus 8

The command line options changed with a new version of the virus scanning
engine. Therefore, you need at least engine version 8.5. If your engine is
too old, please update it (i.e. "ravav -UPDATE"). Just as a side note, with
the new engine, an update is later done with -u.

3.1.6 MkS_Vir for Linux

MkS expects its config file mks_vir.cfg in /etc.


3.2 Return codes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 NAI VirusScan (uvscan) return codes:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
as of version 4.x documentation "uvscan.pdf" or "unix403.pdf":

    0  No errors occured; no viruses were found.
    2  Driver integrity check failed.
    6  A general problem.
    8  Could not find a driver.
   10  A virus was found in memory.
   13  One or more viruses or hostile objects were found.
   15  VirusScan self-check failed; it may be infected or damaged.
  102  User quit via ESC-X, ^C or Exit button.

  Exit code 102 occurs where the scan encounters an unexpected error, such as
  denied access or memory shortage. On these occasions, the scan exits
  immediately and does not finish the scan.

Bernhard Nowotny <nowotny@sigma-c.de> writes:
Error codes returned by SWEEP (thanks to christian.weber@sophos.com):
  SWEEP returns error codes if there is an error or if a virus is found
  SWEEP returns:
    0  If no errors are encountered and no viruses are found
    1  If the user interrupts the execution by pressing ESC
    2  If some error preventing further execution is discovered, or if
       compressed files have been found when using the -WC command line
       qualifier
    3  If viruses or virus fragments are discovered

  A different set of error codes will be returned if SWEEP is run with the
  -eec command line qualifier.
    0  If no errors are encountered and no viruses are found
    8  If survivable errors have occured
   12  If compressed files have been found and decompressed
   16  If compressed files have been found and not decompressed

------------------------------------------------------------------------
 H+BEDV AntiVir/X
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: Since AntiVir 6.12.x you must have a (valid) license key! Either
a free license for private use or a commercial license. Otherwise
AntiVir/X returns always 214 - regardless if a virus was found or not
and this is quite useless for AMaViS.

4 Updates
Some antivirus companies provide updates for the virus definition files
(pattern files) for the latest virus/latest viruses in (a) small extra
file(s), i.e. Sophos Anti-Virus virus identities (IDE).  See
http://www.sophos.com/downloads/ide/ for more information about IDE files.
For versions of sweep older than 3.37, these files are located in the
directory ide/ below your Sophos tree, i.e. /opt/sophos/ide and the
environment variable SAV_IDE should therefore be set to SAV_IDE=/opt/sophos/ide
in the AMaViS script.  From sweep version 3.37 on, this is no longer necessary,
as sweep reads the ide directory location from /etc/sav.conf.  The default is
/usr/local/sav.

NAI provides an extra driver, which has to be specified on the command line
via --extra /path-to/EXTRA.DAT


Please keep in mind that your antivirus software needs regular updates. Set up
a cron job with the appropriate ftp/ncftp/wget commands for automatic updates.
NAI provides a script in their PDF manual. F-Secure AV comes with their own
update program. I would also strongly recommand to subscribe to an alert
mailinglist, which most AV companies offer, to get information about the
latest virus outbreaks.

Note: please keep in mind an update process may fail. So, your script
should do first a backup, download the file(s) and after that starting
the virus scanner to check the eicar test file virus. If the virus scanner
does not exit with exit code "virus found" then your script should do
a roll-back and send an alert message to virusalert indication update
process failed.

4.1 Update scripts
The scripts are provided by users without any warranty. Use them on your
own risk.

4.1.3 Script for KasperskyLab AVP by Andy Wallace
#!/usr/bin/perl

use Net::FTP;
# in the libnet package - you may have to get it from CPAN - I did.

# Directory to download into
$DIR="/usr/local/AvpLinux";

# Get current time and date
($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = gmtime(time);

# I just want this stuff so I can save each daily.zip as a different
filename with a date attached, so I know I haven't missed any. Format is
dailyddmmyy.zip (yes I'm British), so I need to make a few changes.

# Jan = 0, so add 1 to $mon
$mon++;
if ($mon<10) {
    $mon="0$mon";
}

# Days of month are 1-31, so that's OK
if($mday<10) {
    $mday="0$mday";
}

# gmtime thinks this year is 100! At least in my version of Perl...so
don't
use this script after 2099 :-)
$year -= 100;
if($year<10) {
    $year="0$year";
}

# Connect to FTP server and download daily.zip
$ftp = NET::FTP->new("ftp.kasperskylab.ru", Passive, 1);
$ftp->login("ftp", someone\@somewhere.com");
$ftp->cwd("/bases");
$ftp->binary;
$ftp->get("daily.zip", "$DIR/daily$mday$mon$year.zip");
$ftp->quit;

# Check it turned up OK, if so unzip it, if not send an email
if (-e "$DIR/daily$mday$mon$year.zip") {
    system("/usr/bin/unzip -o -qq $DIR/daily$mday$mon$year.zip -d
$DIR");
}
else {
    system("/bin/mail -s \"Antivirus daily update failure!\" root");
}

# Now restart AVP daemon to load updated virus library
system("/usr/local/AvpLinux/AvpDaemon -k");
system("/usr/local/AvpLinux/AvpDaemon -* /var/amavis");

# End of perl script

Put a call to this in your root crontab to run it every day. e.g.

5 Why AMaViS will never stop all viruses
AMaViS is not an antivirus scanner, it's only an "interface" for virus
scanning at the eMail gateway in combination with one (or even) more of the
virus scanners listed above. Virus detection and stopping depends therefore on
the quality of the virus scanner. To get an impression about the detection
rate of antivirus products, please have a look at Virus Bulletin
(www.virusbtn.com), Virus Test Center (http://agn-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/)
or AV-Test (www.av-test.com).
Please keep in mind that viruses in encrypted eMails/attachments cannot be
detected! Also, if an infected attachment file is compressed with a
compression format for which AMaViS is not configured (we believe that the
most important formats are covered, though), it gets through, unless the
virus scanner(s) used is/are able to decode/uncompress it.
If this happens, it's the job of your client-side anti-virus software to
detect and stop the virus from spreading when the attachment gets decrypted
or uncompressed.


5.1 Blocking certain file(s) / file type(s)
AMaViS does not currently support blocking certain files by type or extension,
e.g. .vbs or .exe. Such a capability may be added in the future. But please
keep in mind that the file extension can be forged as easily as the MIME-type.
