Virus Scan exclusions/settings using Linuxshield

Is anyone aware of known exclusions for scanning using Linuxshield ?

There's many documented for different servers in the Windows world, database, email domain controllers etc, so I'm assuming the same must apply for linux.

cheers

Re: Virus Scan exclusions/settings using Linuxshield

Hi,

We don't currently have a Knowldgebase article listing specific/recommended exclusions for this product.

If you are using LinuxShield, and have been for some time, and have not seen any issues then it's probably not something to worry about.

If you've experienced issues with specific applications after installing LinuxShield, then there *may* be a problem with files/folders which need excluding. In this scenario, you'd be best to raise a case with Tech Support where we can investigate the issue in more detail to determine the root cause.

If an issue/conflict is found, we would typically document it in the Knowledgebase at that point.

Hope this helps,

Rod.

Nope, haven't used linuxshield before - but will tread carefully for similar windows-based exclusions like database files.

Looks like Linuxshield isn't that popular (yet)

Re: Virus Scan exclusions/settings using Linuxshield

It's good to exclude the /var/log [default] and /proc directories for On Access.

and yes.. forgot to mention..

any directories that might hold DB files.
