Re: antivirus scanning facility

I extract the package "libstdc++2.8_2.90.29-2.deb" (from potato old_lib) and add the path in LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The uvscan works but when I analyse a mail with the virus not detected by the old version of uvscan, I have the same result. It doesn't dectect the virus. http://fr.mcafee.com/root/genericVIL.asp?genericURL=/VirusInfo/VIL/dispVirus.asp&virus_k=99950

As the virus is a file with extension ".pif", I add a filter in exiscan to block this type of attachment.

Now, I'll test clamav and send a mail to McAfee to explain this case.

I send a mail to McAfee for the old version of libstdc++

I try to install uvscan but the libstdc++ used is libstdc++.so.2.6

My Gnu/Linux distribution is debian woody (stable release) and the default libraries are libstdc++.so.3 & libstdc++.so.3.0.4

Do you have a release of uvscan using these libraries.



Here is the response:

The engine is only compiled with 2.8.  There should be a 2.8 compatible
library on the Debian installation media.
Thanks for your help.


Don't forget this weekend with the fosdem - http://www.fosdem.org

Since the beginning of this week, I see that there are virus not detected by uvscan (with virus signature file up-to-date). There are a new version of uvscan on McAfee Website. This release use "libstdc++.so.2.8"

That's an _extremely_ old version of the standard C++ library. You could try
lobbying McAffee for a version linked to a libstdc++ from this millenium, or
for a statically linked version.

and the lib in debian is "libstdc++.so.3.x". When I launch this new version, the program stops because the libstdc++.so.2.8 doesn't exists.

My questions are: How I can install this library without break the
libraries on my servers

You could try installing the "libstdc++2.8" package which is available in
the "oldlibs" section of the "oldstable" distribution (potato).

just do:
#ln -s libstdc++.so.3.x libstdc++.so.2.8

Don't do that. If you're lucky, the software will crash immediately. If
you're unlucky, it'll have subtle or less subtle problems.
