MailCleaner Support
Added over 8 years ago

In addition to ClamAV with the latest commercial signatures, MailCleaner implements the famous Kaspersky antivirus in its antispam solution.
Kaspersky is an option. For more information please contact: sales@mailcleaner.net



The implementation of the Kaspersky antivirus requires no prior configuration by the administrator. The antivirus has been implemented to run independently and transparently.

Here are few commands for administering the Kaspersky antivirus in MailCleaner.
NOTE : Kaspersky antivirus is available only for 64-bit architecture.

Manage Daemon

The daemon handles Kaspersky Kavehost in order to launch the server that will be called by the client for antivirus scanning. You have the ability to stop, start or restart the server Kavehost:

Usage:    /usr/mailcleaner/etc/init.d/kaspersky  {start|stop|restart}


Kaspersky is updated automatically every 30 minutes via: /opt/kaspersky-updater/kaspersky-update.sh present in the crontab.

The logs: /var/mailcleaner/log/kaspersky/kaspersky_updater.log
The location of signatures: /var/mailcleaner/kaspersky/bases


To compile statistics, we provide a tool that allows you to have information about the detection of kaspersky (number of viruses found, the different viruses, etc.)

To do this, simply run the script:


and you will have something like that:
