Updating malware definitions on an isolated Linux client

According to the documentation (https://help.f-secure.com/product.html#business/policy-manager/14.30/en/task_1FEF19DB5C944869A09966B8692E30F2-14.30-en ) one can update an isolated Windows client with the fsaua-update.exe tool and the generated archive. How can this be done with an isolated Linux client using the latest "F-Secure Linux Security 64"?

    Hi Juru,

     

    To update the malware definitions on an isolated Linux client, you may run the commands mentioned in the same article on the Policy Manager machine. You may follow the Linux commands mentioned in the article to prepare and run the fsaua-update tool and import the prepared updates.

    Hi Monika,

     

    What I mean is, does there exist the counterpart of the "fsaua-update.exe" for Linux? Giving you the possibility to update the virus definitions on the endpoint itself.

     

    Or is it only possible for Linux endpoints to be updated via the Policy Manager?

     

    We want to have the possibility to update the virus defintions on the Linux endpoint even if there does not exist temporarely a connection to the Policy Manager.

    Hi Juru,

     

    For Linux Security 64, it is possible to install LS64 without internet connection, but latest database updates cannot be obtained from an offline environment. Therefore Policy Manager needs to use update their database using the method explained here (https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business-Suite/Updating-malware-definitions-in/ta-p/102981)
