XWall · The Mail Filter

SecuriteInfo has more than 1 million signatures and parsing them takes a lot of time, CPU and memory.

So be aware that when the ClamAV service starts, there may be a timeout warning.

Make sure ClamAV is properly installed and XWall can communicate native with the ClamAV service

If you want to use SaneSecurity Rules too, make sure you configure them first

Download SecuriteInfo rules using SaneSecurity ClamSup

Open ClamSup.ini with an editor, usually located in C:\ClamSup, and locate the SecuriteInfo databases section near the end of the file.

Remove all entries from that section and replace them with the following, replacing ​xxx_your_unique_string_xxx​ with your own unique id

# securiteinfo.hdb : ​Mainly executable malwares (exe, com, dll, ...)
# securiteinfohtml.hdb and javascript.ndb : ​HTML or Javascript malwares
# securiteinfoascii.hdb : ​text file malwares (Perl or shell scripts, bat files, exploits, ...)
# spam_marketing.ndb : ​spammer blacklist. Warning, this file can generate some false positives !

Open a DOS Box, change to the ClamSup directory and type

start ClamSup.bat -v

ClamSup will run for a few minutes and download all SaneSecurity and SecuriteInfo databases. After the download ClamSup copies the databases into the ClamAV db folder and restarts ClamAV.

In the case ClamSup.bat immediately closes, locate clamsup.error and check the error. Once you fixed the error, start ClamSup.bat again.
