[Question] configuration using SQL

Hi all,

 

I heard that it is possible to configure MailScanner by using SQL database. So, I started a bit of research but found not many documentations about this. Therefore, I’d like to ask some help from the community. I have questions which I’ll try to summarise as easily as I can:

 

1.       So, is this about modifying MailScanner.conf file through loading SQL database? Am I thinking correctly?

2.       If #1 was correct, is there any specific database structure I have to follow when creating?

 

I was wondering if there is a central configuration source where multiple MailScanner systems can contact and load from. It seems as if using SQL is a possible way to do so supposed that I am thinking correctly regarding #1. Hopefully, I could get help from someone out there. Cheers.

Generic virus scanner

Hello,

MailScanner Version 4.85.2-3

We havre written our own generic virus scanner to check the macros included in some Office documents.

We use the "generic-wrapper" but it doesn't work as in SweepViruses.pm we found the line

3671 sub InstalledScanners {
3672 
3673   my( <at> installed, $scannername, $nameandpath, $name, $path, $command, $result);
3674 
3675   # Get list of all the names of the scanners to look up. There are a few
3676   # rogue ones!
3677   my  <at> scannernames = keys %Scanners;
3678 
3679     print STDERR "\n\n  <at> scannernames \n\n ";
3680   foreach $scannername ( <at> scannernames) {
3681     next unless $scannername;
3682     next if $scannername =~ /generic|none/i;
3684     $nameandpath = MailScanner::Config::ScannerCmds($scannername);
3685     ($name, $path) = split(',', $nameandpath);
3686     $command = "$name $path -IsItInstalled";
3687     print STDERR "$command gave: ";
3688     $result = system($command) >> 8;
3689     print STDERR "\"$result\"\n";
3690     push  <at> installed, $scannername unless $result;
3691   }

So should we choose another name that "generic-wrapper" ?

Regards

CustomFunctions

I've just updated MailScanner to 5.0.1-2 on Mageia, and (after a few 
tweaks) all seems to be working well.

However, it seems to be ignoring CustomFunctions for MailWatch - has the 
CustomFunctions directory moved?

Thanks

Chris

Exe and js in zip

Hi,

 

What works best for blocking .exe and .js files within zip attachments?

 

We seem to have quite a few of these coming through…

MailScanner v5.0.1-2 Release

Updates to the installers. MailScanner code is unchanged.

https://www.mailscanner.info/downloads

I’ll get this straight eventually … 

The Debian, RHEL, and SUSE installers no longer ask to upgrade your MailScanner.conf during an upgrade. It
just does it. It makes copies of:

- the distro MailScanner.conf
- your old MailScanner.conf
- the new MailScanner.conf

and puts them in ~/ms_upgrade/saved.$$ with intuitive extensions. ($$ is the process id when installed)

The file /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf is your old settings with any upgrades (new options)
automatically applied.

Avast core linux wrapper?

Not trying to be a badger or anything, but would it be possible to get a working wrapper for the latest Avast Core Linux command line scanner?

 

I would be perfectly happy to provide the Centos 6.x rpm from Avast as well as my license file if that would help.

 

Thanks,

Tracy Greggs

Avast Core LInux Scanner wrapper?

https://www.avast.com/en-us/linux-server-antivirus

 

I have a licensed version of the latest core command line scanner but neither the Avast or avastd wrapper work.

 

Their lastest core version runs as a service but I think things have changed since the MS wrapper was written.

 

Any chance of getting an updated wrapper to support this?

 

Thanks,

Tracy Greggs
