Panel is heavily based on excellent work by Damien Curtain on Pagefault.org
|Created/Updated:||09-04-2006 (revision history)|
|Versions supported:||6.0.x and 6.5beta2|
The SME Server Antivirus installation based on Clam Antivirus enables automatic email virus scanning of all incoming/outgoing emails and ensures that the virus definition database is automatically kept up to date. The Panel provides an option for daily statistics as well as automatic deletion of old email stored and Quarantined (usually virus infected) and Problems.
If you have installed by use of an older version of this script you can now run it again for upgrade (also if you are currently using the version from pagefault.org). Be aware that older versions of ClamAV (0.65) had DoS vulnerabilities and that the ClamAV database has changed dramatically from version 0.80 with new mirror functionality so an upgrade might be a very good idea.
[root@e-smith]# wget -N http://sme.swerts-knudsen.dk/downloads/AntiVirus/antivirus_install.sh
[root@e-smith]# sh antivirus_install.sh
You can now try to send a test "virus" email by attaching one of the signatures you can find at eicar.org. This enables you to see whether the system detects this signature file and whether your admin account (email@example.com) receives the virus notification email.

|What do I do if I get the error
message when I initially activate the panel from the server-manager
Can't call method "props" on an undefined value
at /etc/e-smith/web/panels/manager/cgi-bin/spamfilter line 206.
|Problem is that the auto generated
configuration file has invalid content (a bug). Do the following from shell:
#mv spamassassin_V3 spamassassin_V3.old
#wget -N http://sme.swerts-knudsen.dk/downloads/SpamFilter/spamassassin_V3
|What if I am currently using the panel from pagefault.org - can I run this install script?||Yes. This script will detect the
pagefault.org version and do an upgrade.
|I get error message to my admin
account with following content:
|Early installation script did not install needed Perl module. Install:|
|I get error message to my admin
account with following subject "/usr/bin/freshclam --quiet -
and this message:
ERROR: CVD file not found on remote server
|Usually this happens if your system is trying to update virus database while a new is being uploaded on the database server by the Clam team. The error message should not happen the next time the antivirus panel updates.|
|Where are the Quarantined and Problems emails located?||
emails will be quarantined in /var/spool/amavis-ng/quarantine and Problems
|My server is behind a firewall or in DMZ and the Clam databases is not being updated.||Configure the Proxy setting in the Antivirus Panel|
