f-prot does not update

Post by hron » 05 Oct 2013 19:24

hi forum,
i have updated to 2.0.91beta4 version yesterday and installed the f-prot free version.
I also made the patches described in the known bugs list.
After 24 hours I did not see any update in f-prot. The cron jobs seem to be fine, I see messages about it in messages.
I had a look into the 'check-updates_f-prot.sh' and found this strange string there
echo "Lizenz läuft ab am 2010-04-19" >> $TMP_FILE3
I have never seen such lines in the past emails, sent after succesful f-prot updates.
I also run the script manually and investigated the 3 TMP_FILEx, but it seems if there are no updates found.
In the past I had updates at least once per day. I am wondering if I have installed the correct versions now.
May be its normal, but if you have hints to investigate that I would be glad.
thanks
ron

Re: f-prot does not update

Hi,

What are the contents of 'fprot_counter' and 'fprot_counter.conf'?

Code: Select all

cat /var/log/copfilter/default/etc/fprot_counter
cat /var/log/copfilter/default/etc/fprot_counter.conf
To make sure that the FPROT-counter is working, repeat the first command a few times after waiting 6, 11, 16 minutes... ;-)
'fprot_counter'-value must be getting smaller in 5-minute-steps.

Besides, the last F-PROT update occured at 16:05.

Hi,

I've no update for f-prot since 2013-10-03
Signatures des virus: 2013-10-03 13:25 antivir.def

Last update for f-prot on VirusTotal Website is 2013-10-03

So i think it is an issue from F-Prot/Commtouch.

Regards

Thank you for your help.
@Mathias,
The update was performed at 16:05 because I re-installed f-prot, just to be sure that I have the correct ws-version installed and not the commercial one.

@ShelbyGT500
thats good news, this is exactly the version of my data base. So it seems there was no update in between.

I was also consideruing bying a license for f-prot. Do they use the same database?
thanks ron

Re: f-prot does not update - solved

Post by hron » 07 Oct 2013 19:29

yes indeed, I got the update too. Strange that I updated copfilter in that moment when they dont provide database updates for several days ;)
It still remains the 'license expire' message, shown in the update mail, but I can help myself to fix that in the script.
Thanks for your help.
regards
ron

I hope I do, here is my version string

Code: Select all

F-PROT Antivirus CLS version 6.7.10.6267, 32bit (built: 2012-03-27T12-34-14)
Engine version:   4.6.5.141
Virus signatures: 201310071850
the message "Lizenz läuft ab am 2010-04-19" is produced by the file 'check-updates_f-prot.sh', which is located under "/var/log/copfilter/default/opt/tools/bin".
I dont think it is part of the f-prot tar ball. Isnt it created by copfilter during the f-prot installation?

Anyway, no problem, this line is quickly deleted. Im happy that the update is working now, sveral times today already.
