McAfee and ClamAV engines are End of Life.

Post by Toxic17 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 1:58 am

Just wanted to inform the users on this board that if you use either McAfee or ClamAV Antivirus Packages, the AV engines are both End Of Life.

At time of post McAfee QPKG v2.2.1 is the latest from QNAP. however the engine used to carryout the scanning process is version 5900

Engine version: 5900.7806 (64bit)

McAfee has already Stated this is End of life and should be upgraded to either 6000 or 6x00 (supporting Kernel 4.4 as well - QTS 4.4.x)
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?p ... id=KB89069

ClamAV also has an out of date engine.

Code: Select all

[~] # /usr/local/bin/freshclam --debug --show-progress -u admin
ClamAV update process started at Tue Aug 13 18:51:49 2019
WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.99.3 Recommended version: 0.101.3
DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/documents/upgrading-clamav
main.cvd is up to date (version: 58, sigs: 4566249, f-level: 60, builder: sigmgr)
daily.cvd is up to date (version: 25540, sigs: 1713558, f-level: 63, builder: raynman)
bytecode.cvd is up to date (version: 330, sigs: 94, f-level: 63, builder: neo)
WARNING: Local version: 0.99.3 Recommended version: 0.101.3

0.99.3 was Jan 2018 and the above message is actually from ClamAV themselves.

I have raised a ticket with QNAP about a year ago and have done another one today. Why? simply it appears 1 ticket seems to fall on deaf ears. You could also do the same to raise some more awareness.

I am running Clamav, are you saying that it can no longer be updated?
I have just tried to update via the link provided (Update file at: www.clamav.net) but cannot find a .CVD file, any suggestions?

i was gonna use the bult in AV. but now thanks to reading here, i may actually service for Mcafee..

Probably even better, standalone Windows app like Zonealaem, and mount share to scan over network

I find this to really be the only way moving forward... The downside is its slow as **...:( I have no 1Gig connection but only on NAS,, but have now gotten use to having 2 connections.

1) i disconnect network and 169.x via private ip directly via Thunderbolt to EIhernet on Mac to NAS 1 Gig port, then mount share.. (if on Windows PC, use wired)
2) reconnect Wi-fi.

There has to be a better way, but for now it works, This way, despite internet access via router, map share is still going via 169x,. Its the best i can see so far..

The other way would be to to upgrade all my equipment with 1Gig :P That ain't gonna happen anytime soon, but patience may push me over that edge soon.

so my friend who has a mcaffee license has to upgrade to 4.4.1 .... just to be able to used the updated av app?

but i noticed his system had an unexplained file system unclean and a raid rebuild. thats why i am very reluctant to suggest he use 4.4.1 until that gets fixed. because he needs a stable system.

it's a shame :{ i'll point him to this thread.
