Thanks for your great efforts, guys! Well done! Congratulations! :-TU

Congratulations on the release :-TU. Have been looking forward to this for a long time.


Congrats with the release. I will install it on my Ubuntu 12.04 in VM Ware later.

this is excellent news!

You guys worked very hard in making this happen, welldone!


In my ubuntu 12.04, when I scan the files with cloud scanning enabled, after a time (normally in wine files) the scan is freezing and then when I want to cancel the scan, I can’t and all the computer is frozen and I need to restart the computer. In the beta version was no problem and the diagnostic before the scanning was no problem with the installation. When the cloud scan is disabled, it works correctly. Help please!!!

I got the same issue as you daduck10. With the scan. But I have not tryed to disable the cloud scanner yet. So I will give it a go.
One thing I did notice. While the scan was frozen, is that I notice the clock counting up second by second. After one hour after the scan. I had to Crash my laptop.

In another time, I ran the diagnostics and it found the errors on the attached document. I tryed to correct them, but was unsucessfully.

Hi again, After I installed mine I ran a diagnostics and it found errors. So I ran it to fix any problems and said all fixed then a pop-up came up please restart your system. So I did and go back and ran a new test then it said not errors found.

So I am puzzled on your errors.

But all I can think do you run though the licence ok via the terminal and press Y for the Licence and the number for your Language.

Then after that it runs a long script until it checks the cmdagent.exe as in it stops it and starts again.



I did it again, made the diagnostics and it founds erros. I fixed them, restarted the pc and now are no more errors, but the problem with the cloud scan persists.

Thank you for the release.

Installed on Ubuntu 12.04. Errors detected for Mail Gateway, after running diagnostic 2 times, they were fixed.

Ran a scan with and without cloud scanning enabled without any problem.

Boris you must have a lucky PC.

I will have to reinstall it and reset and see what I get



Does the Linux version use the same definition file as the windows version?


Hi daduck10,

Thanks for your feedback. could you help to check the issue by the following steps?

  • disable realtime scanning, in fact if you do not use it to guard file server, no need to turn on realtime scanning.
  • scan with cloud scan enabled.
  • check if process cmdagent still exist after scanning


Do you mean that CAVL is not intended to catch malware in real time?


The process from the antivirus (cav) after the crash was working. The antivirus just stops to work with all the computer.

Hi Boris 3,

In version 1.0, CAVL and CIS for Windows use the same base file, so CAVL only detect malware on Windows platform. If we use a Linux file server, enable real time scanning will help to scan files uploaded by users. If we only use it as a mail gateway, or schedule scan stored files, no need to enable real time scanning.


Hi daduck10,

cav is only UI, cmdagent is the real scanning process. So could you help to report cmdagent’s status?
