F17 KDE Klamav issue


I have fedora 17 kde desktop and ran the klamav for the first time. It found 8 viruses. I deleted them, rebooted and system wouldnt boot. It just said couldnt find kernel. I ened up reformatting and installing fedora again. Anyone had any issues with klamav doing this?

Clamav is very good; it is an industrial standard anti-virus software. I used that before, I am using today, and have no plan of changing to another cleaner. But I don't use its GUI front ends: I suspect "Klamav" configuration has led you to false-positives and since your command was to delete/remove then your symlink to kernel might have been deleted also.

Use clamav at the terminal. Update it first
Code:
~# freshclam
be sure you are online and wait until the database is updated.

Make a directory where you can move (NOT DELETE) suspicious files
Code:
~# mkdir -p /root/clamav/move
Copy this code and paste to an editor and save as "scan" at folder /usr/bin --

Code:
clamscan -v -r --scan-archive=yes --cross-fs=yes --stdout \
--heuristic-scan-precedence=yes --move=/root/clamav/move \
--algorithmic-detection=yes --detect-pua=yes \
--include-pua=Packed --include-pua=RAT "$@"
Make it executable:
Code:
~# chmod +x /usr/bin/scan
You may now scan your whatever folder or drive you want using a fancy command like this:
Code:
~# scan /home (or)
~# scan /tmp
You can allow other users to use 'scan' command by setting permission:
Code:
~# chown root:clamav /usr/bin/scan
and make regular $USER as member of group 'clamav' for them to be able to use "scan" command.

Hope that helps.

Good luck.
