Archive is corrupted
« on: June 13, 2008, 03:35:48 PM »
Hi, I have 16 linux server licenses on a fedora postfix mail server. I have everything working properly but I am receiving this warning message in my avastd.log file. Do you know what this could be from? Thanks



Jun 13 08:19:10 avastd[21475]: info: new avast! socket connection at /var/run/avastmail/mailscanner.sock
Jun 13 08:19:10 avastd[21475]: warning: mail[21479]: /var/lib/avastmail/tmp/msg1488727712/PartNo_0#340131558    [E]     Archive is corrupted

I'm not sure as I do not use the server version, but the message Archive is corrupted seems to be related to a packaging problem with that particular email message. Generally, avast was not able to handle it, not that is infected itself.
Hope someone with more knowledge could help you.

Maybe some new virus database changing... How knows...
Are you sure that your emails are being scanned or not?

No worries. I found the problem. The reason for the archive corrupted error message was that /var/tmp/avast4 directory did not have the right permissions. I change the permisson and the message never came back!

if this happens to you try this:

chmod 777 /var/tmp/avast4


Hope this helps out the next guy who has this issue. Thanks guys!
