Problem with virus-database update
« on: November 25, 2005, 03:25:26 PM »
Hi I'm problem with my first instance of avast!

When I updatewirus-database with avastvpsupdate.pl script i have following error:

galaxy:# ./avastvpsupdate.pl
Using wget 'GNU Wget 1.9.1' to get new VPS update
Getting md5 checksum for new VPS
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at ./avastvpsupdate.pl line 401.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at ./avastvpsupdate.pl line 406.
Error downloading 'http://files.avast.com/files/latest/400vps.md5':
Error: cannot download the latest VPS MD5 file

I don't know perl so i cannot debug the script.
Is this common issue or did I something wrong with instalation ?

And my second question is if there is somekind of test-file or sth to use with avast! ?
I need to know if avast! is working fine before deploying it on production site.

Hi,
can you insert this command:
    print "$result\n\n";
into avastvpsupdate.pl file at line no.386
and send me back the result to analyse?

Thx

Hi,
as You asked I've inserted so I have following file (from line 381):
    my $result = `$command 2>&1`;
    # ----------------------------------------------------------------
    # We can't trust the exit code for wget :-( so we run wget with
    # server-response enabled and check for the '200 OK' code.
    # ----------------------------------------------------------------
    print "$result\n\n";
    if ($result =~ m/HTTP/) {
      my @result = split "\n",$result;
      my %result;
      foreach (@result) {
        next unless  /^\s*\s+(\S+)\s+(.*)$/;    #/^\s*\d+\s+(\S+)\s+(.*)$/;
        last if /^\s*$/;
        my ($mes,$val) = ($1,$2);
        $mes =~ s/://;
        $result{$mes} = $val;
      }

Please try to change this line:
next unless  /^\s*\s+(\S+)\s+(.*)$/;    #/^\s*\d+\s+(\S+)\s+(.*)$/;
to:
next unless  /^\s*\d*\s+(\S+)\s+(.*)$/;
