I have little faith in McAfee's uvscan for FreeBSD anymore. A couple
weeks ago, 24 viruses (recent variants of Lirva, Sobig, Braid and
BO-Installer) cruised right thru my FreeBSD mail-gw system which uses
Amavis with uvscan , and were flat outright not detected at all by
McAfee uvscan with up-to-date DAT files. They were found after they
made it thru to internal Windows boxes running Trend and Norton
antivirus products. :-(
I really don't to do away with FreeBSD as my email gateway/filter
machine, since it would be such a pain to remake it as Linux instead.
Anybody got advice as to which one of Norton or Trend command-line
virus scanner for Linux runs best under FreeBSD? My employer (a
flag-waving, retired US military officer) won't let me buy or install
antivirus software from anyone other than the "big three" (McAfee,
Norton or Trend) and yells at me whenever I mention any of the
European antivirus vendors.... he doesn't know Trend is a Tokyo, Japan
headquartered company, thinks they're from California. He'd probably
punch me for suggesting Kaspersky.
