    *.bup files in Quarantine Folder ?

    finkemch

      we have seen many systems with *.bup files in the quarantine folder

       

      - but there are also files stored at systems without quarantined viruses - Buffer Overflow captures ? (Quarantine Manager ist empty)

      - do we need to check these files into webimmune.net as virussamples ? Or why these files stored here ?

      - is it possible to define to delete files which older than x days or if more than x MB used ?

      - we use Virusscan 8.7 P1

       

      regards

          They are encoded/encrypted backups of viruses that have been cleaned/deleted.

           

          By default they should be deleted automatically based on the schedule defined in the Quarantine Manager Policy, but sometimes I believe McAfee loses track of some files that have been put in that area (possible causes - upgrades/poor shutdowns/corruption in the index etc etc).

           

          They can be safely deleted.
