Re: Antivirus setup?
It would make sense that a number of us ISPs and hosting companies got
together and helped on of these antivirus initiatives.
While we have no choice but to use a commercial antivirus product on our
Web Hosting and email servers, some of our clients, such as the school
(which is why I am investigating this) and non-profits cannot afford to
buy these expensive products.
They don't have to be REALLY great... but at least detect the most common
virus going around and block/rename them.
I looked at Openantivirus... runs in Java.... I can see performance going
down the drain because the school's mail server is only a 586 with 128M
(or was it 64M) of ram...and they also run a small internal website for
teachers on it. So it obviously isn't any beefy server.
