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
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.
