The anti-virus portion of Sentinel is powered by ClamAV®. ClamAV is an open source anti-virus engine used in a variety of situations including web scanning, and end point security. It provides a number of utilities including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner and an advanced tool for automatic database updates.
// restart clamav systemctl restart clamd@scan // restart freshclam (Centos /RHEL / Cloudlinux 8 only) systemctl restart clamav-freshclam
// restart clamav systemctl restart clamav-daemon // restart freshclam systemctl restart clamav-freshclam
Centos/RHEL/Cloudlinux 7 users can manually run the freshclam command to update any ClamAV database signatures. On Centos/RHEL/Cloulinux 7 the freshcam command is run by a cron and on Centos/RHEL/Cloulinux 8 and Debian/Ubuntu freshclam has its own running service:
// Centos/RHEL/Cloudlinux 7 freshclam
// Centos /RHEL/Cloudlinux 8 and Debian/Ubuntu systemctl status clamav-freshclam
Signatures are stored in the directory
You can tell the ClamAV daemon to reload its signtures using the command:
If you have a virus that is not detected by ClamAV, please fill out https://www.clamav.net/reports/malware and the ClamAV Detection Content Team will review your submission and update the virus database.
