Clam SMTP is an SMTP filter that allows you to check for viruses using the Clam AV anti-virus software.
It accepts SMTP connections and forwards the SMTP commands and responses to another SMTP server.
Running services like Apache, DNS, Sendmail in jails limits the damage.
Proper separation of privilege in a program goes a long way to staying safe (openntpd is a good example of doing it right).
Make sure that you have installed the following packages (these packages are included by zentyal-antivirus, but make sure that you have installed in your server): ii clamav 0.98.1 dfsg-4ubuntu1.1 amd64 anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface ii clamav-base 0.98.1 dfsg-4ubuntu1.1 all anti-virus utility for Unix - base package ii clamav-daemon 0.98.1 dfsg-4ubuntu1.1 amd64 anti-virus utility for Unix - scanner daemon ii clamav-freshclam 0.98.1 dfsg-4ubuntu1.1 amd64 anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database update utility ii libclamav6 0.98.1 dfsg-4ubuntu1.1 amd64 anti-virus utility for Unix - library -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 40304 jun 6 2010 CHANGELOG -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2789 jun 6 2010 clamav-unofficial-sigs.8 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12421 ago 5 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 705 jun 6 2010 clamav-unofficial-sigs-cron -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 138 jun 6 2010 clamav-unofficial-sigs-logrotate -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 76045 jun 6 2010 clamav-unofficial-sigs.sh* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9459 jun 6 2010 clamd-status.sh* -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5819 jun 6 2010 INSTALL -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1519 jun 6 2010 LICENSE -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3788 jun 6 2010 README 7.

The primary goal of this method of computing is to be able to anticipate and prepare for potentially problematic situations prior to their occurrence, despite any adverse conditions of a computer system or any mistakes made by other users.
There are also instructions for other distros such as Gentoo, Fedora and Open SUSE there as well, as well as Solaris, BSD, and Mac OSX.Never looked at F-Prot so have no comment other than maybe I'll take a peek. They are usually in applications rather than the kernel; since there is more separation than in Windows, bad things can be mitigated.(google for Kevin Mitnick, sendmail bugs, DNS bugs, etc).This article will provide a solution to install an alternative signature database for the clamav antivirus that is included in the Zentyal package suite.In order to install these new antivirus mirrors on your Zentyal server, you can follow the next procedure: 1.
