March 25, 2011 Kaspersky Lab announces the release of Critical Fix 4 for Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.6 for Linux Mail Servers MP1 (version 5.6.45.0).

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.6 for Linux Mail Server protects mail traffic and file system. Application features are implemented using the modules and filters embedded in different MTAs. The filter receives a message from the mail system and sends it to the central application service for scanning. The central service scans the message according to the settings set in the configuration file. After checking and processing the message, it is sent to the filter. The processed message with notifications on scan and treatment results is sent to the mailing system.

Changes in version 5.6.45.0:

Fixes:

  • The kavmd process consumes 100% of the processor time during processing of some messages until the MaxScanTime limit is reached
