Issue:

  • Is the update package self-contained, meaning it contains all signature updates, or is it an incremental update?


 

Resolution:

Note: This article assumes deep technical understanding of both F-Secure's products and the relevant operating system. If you are unsure, contact F-Secure support for assistance.

To update the virus definition databases for F-Secure Linux Security 11.x manually from the command line:

  1. Download the fsdbupdate9.run file from https://download.f-secure.com/latest/fsdbupdate9.run. The file is a self-extracting file that stops the AUA daemon, updates the databases and restarts the AUA.
  2. As a root user, run the dbupdate fsdbupdate9.run command where fsdbupdate9.run is the absolute or relative path to the fsdbupdate9.run file.
The update package is self-contained and contains all necessary updates.
