Anyone have a quick how-to, to add another AV besides Clam?

This would make for a good wiki article :)

I'll browse around. MailScanner supports many different AV solutions.
Version 3.0.2.6 released! Update now to keep your eFa secure!

Last two weeks we had several infected mail messages, not recognized by ClamAV. Replacing CLAMAV with a commercial AV has our interest.

I tried all antivirus possible about 6 month ago, the only that i found to works are clam with unofficial sign (included in efa) and sophos
AVG works (is a old version and i removed it)
Others have great problems,, bitdefender included

any specific problems with FRAMS (bitdefender) you can remember? I was just going to give it a try.

I've installed ESET Linux File Security with success on my EFA machines.
It didn't miss a virus yet 8-)

Quick todo list:

Download esets.x86_64.rpm.bin to /root
Get license on server (/root)
Get to /root (cd /root)

• Install requirements
○ yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686 -y
• Set permissions to ESET installer
○ chmod a+x esets.x86_64.rpm.bin
• Start installation
○ ./esets.x86_64.rpm.bin
• Import license
○ /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_lic --import ESET_File_Security_for_Linux.lic
• Change ESET config
○ nano /etc/opt/eset/esets/esets.cfg
Server = "" remove comment sign #
Fill in ESET username + password (remove comment sign again)
• Change MailScanner config
○ nano /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf
§ Virus Scanners = esets clamd
○ nano /etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf
§ esets /usr/lib/MailScanner/wrapper/esets-wrapper /opt/eset/esets/sbin
• Test ESET scanner
○ /usr/lib/MailScanner/wrapper/esets-wrapper /opt/eset/esets/sbin /root
§ Output = ESET Command-line scanner = good :-)
• Update definitions
○ /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_update
• ESET scanner start & restart MailScanner
○ /etc/init.d/esets start
○ service MailScanner restart

These are personal notes, correct me when I'm wrong or ask if something isn't clear.
:D

turns out the free version does not include antivirus...
Note
The Antivirus component is not available in Bitdefender Free Antispam for Mail
Servers. If you want antivirus protection also, you must purchase a license for
BitDefender Security for Mail Servers.

Hi Z3us,

Got ESET working as per my other message.

Interestingly though, I'm not seeing good results with ESET. Did you compare ESET with any other vendors?

I'm running trials with ESET / F-Secure / Sophos, and so far ESET is streets behind F-Secure and Sophos (these 2 largely detect the same results for each email). We get a lot of malware infected email and trojans hitting out scanners, and ESET hasn't fired once on these (it works with EICAR tests). The other 2 never miss a beat.

Having checked various sources and chatted to their support, it seems ESET is behind in protecting from new threats and isn't part of the ESET live grid.

Just thought I'd let you know my experiences. I'll be sticking with F-Secure and Sophos for now.

Help Z3us..
I followed you instructions for install Eset .
i installed Eset on EFA-3.0.2.6 .
it seems that Eset is working on the operating system but I got on Mailwatch --> top virus :
"Unknown virus scanner defined in MailScanner.conf. Review your configuration and don't use 'auto' as antivirus name (see FAQ)."
