Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.
Assessors are #iasme
Anybody else come across this?
@davidoclubb @athairbirb @kev perhaps they want you to scan all incoming files via email? This would make sense since malicious software is not exclusive to windows anymore and deppending on the permissions, this needs to be addressed in multi user environment. ClamAv or Sophos to be tested.
Why do you think we should not use av on linux?
Also, i really do think we should use AV on linux server on demand at least on email servers for all email. But i am dumb, play a bit with this
@davidoclubb @kev @athairbirb i dont, no. I will from today on my local machine, i feel inspired with this thread and it would not hurt to have it to learn stuff. I used clamwin in the past on windows machine so i was familiar a bit with it in the past in terms of engine (not that it matters today).
@davidoclubb I don't know all the details, obviously. So this is a best guess, so take it with a pinch of salt.
I can see where they're coming from - Linux isn't impervious to virus' and if you're using Windows in your infra as well, using Linux with no AV could be a potential infection vector for your MS infra.
It's tenuous, but not out of the realms of possibility.
@davidoclubb Was this for Essentials, or Plus?
Some auditors are seriously brutal. Others will work with you a little and provide you guidance, as opposed to just flat out failing you.
As for the AV, I believe it's more about proving you're protecting against malware where data could be stored.
We're just prepping for our Plus renewal again. It's a bloody nightmare :).
If you're going for Plus, brace yourself for some new rules around BYOD.
@gray just standard thankfully, and the feedback has been useful so hopefully we will pass on our free Secunderabad attempt...😬😱
