documentation:anti_virus:mcafee:install [MailScanner Wiki]: "vlnxp4440l.tar.Z"

Installing McAfee VirusScan for Unix
Since McAfee VirusScan is a commercial anti-virus scanner you will have to purchase it.

If you already have bought a site license of some form you may be eligible to download a version suitable to you already, “free of extra charge” (It might be as easy as going to the download page, choosing “Product upgrade”, entering your organizations grant number, choosing →“VirusScan Commandline Scanners”, agreeing to the terms and finally clicking on the file you want;), or if you have a valid license.dat you should be able to download and install the trial version, then just replace the license.dat file with your own.

Download the version for your intended server OS.


Generic tar install (AIX/FreeBSD/HPUX/Linux/Solaris)
Put the package in a directory and unpack it (the linux version will be used in the example):

[root@mail ~]# mkdir viruscan4400
[root@mail ~]# mv vlnxp4440l.tar.Z viruscan4400/
[root@mail ~]# cd viruscan4400/
[root@mail viruscan4400]# tar xvzf vlnxp4440l.tar.Z
or
[root@mail viruscan4400]# gzip -cd < vlnxp4440l.tar.Z | tar xvf -


Then run the install-uvscan script (as root) to install into the default directory /usr/local/uvscan:

[root@mail viruscan4400]# ./install-uvscan
Which directory do you want to install into? [/usr/local/uvscan]
Uninstalling previous version … done.
Do you want to create the link(s) to uvscan in /usr/local/bin [y]/n
Do you want to create the link(s) to uvscan_secure in /usr/local/bin [y]/n
Do you want to create the link(s) to liblnxfv.so.4 in /usr/local/lib [y]/n
Do you want to create the link(s) to uvscan.1 in /usr/local/man/man1 [y]/n

Installation complete.

Do you want to perform a scan of all filesystems y/[n]

And that’s all you need do. Now, to use it in MailScanner, first run update_virus_scanners to download the latest DAT files immediately:

[root@mail viruscan4400]# update_virus_scanners

and then edit MailScanner.conf to include mcafee in your “Virus Scanners” setting.


Notes and historical issues
Specific information regarding prerequisites are in the readme.txt (in all packages).
There are two versions for x86 Linux, where the vlnx4… version is for older kernels/distributions (2.2/2.4), and the vlnxp4… version is for more recent offerings (2.4/2.6 kernel, libc6, optimized for P4s (but works on regular pentiums)). This difference is not that well documented at the download page.
There are also versions for SCO Open Server and Linux on IBM S390. These lag a bit version-wise, and will be End Of Life with version 4320. Check the End Of Life list for current information.
Engine version 4320 is susceptible to this vunerability (ISS), McAfees PDF, McAfees FAQ. Solution is to update to 4400 immediately, and implies that 4320 is deprecated.
There has been issues using uvscan on systems where part of the scanned paths involved have been symbolic links. The standard recommendation (whether it still holds or not) is to not use symbolic links in conjunction with the mcafee scanner.
Some (older) versions have been known to need compatibility libc files installed (mainly linux versions), and has further been known to spew error messages about the inability to access the CD drive onto the textmode console.

改為香港祈禱

助養多年的兩個女孩,一個是孟加拉的,一個是越南的。應該已經差不多成年了吧? 今天,毅然放棄助養,是因為覺得香港的年輕一代更需攜助與支持。宣明會對香港的林鄭災難,以祈禱來解決,那麼我也祈禱那不富裕的外國家庭可以繼續讀書。 香港的未來,更應該給他們校園的陽光,而不是鐵窗密室! ...
