Linux Protection compatibility with Postfix/Mailscanner on CentOS

christsiavchristsiav Posts: 2 New Member


I have a mail server running on a centos machine with postfix/mailscanner and f-secure as an antivirus engine. Up until now i had no problems using Linux Security product from f-secure ver 11.10 and emails get scanned for viruses and other malicious code. Yesterday I upgraded f-secure to Linux Protection as linux security is end of life support. But i noticed that the integration with mailscanner does not work anymore. Mailscanner has not been updated to reflect the changes associated with the new version of f-secure. F-secure linux protection is a completely new product. I tried to modify the wrapper script of mailscanner (f-secure-wrapper) to include fsanalyze executable (as fsav does not exist anymore) but with no success.

Is there a workaround or a compatibility option with the old version (fsav) i can write to the command line for mailscanner to work?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi christsiav

    Are you using a script to run Linux Security version 11's fsav tool to scan emails ?

    Please note that now with Linux Security 64, fsav is no longer available but fsanalyze is provided instead so that script doesn't work anymore.

    We suggest to open a support case ( and explain how you have been using fsav and we could check if fsanalyze could be used instead of fsav in your use case.

    Can you please provide the new script (f-secure-wrapper) for the new program (fsanalyze)?

    I have the same problem ...

    As Mailscanner is 3rd party software, It seems the open source community is already handling the first case in
