OpenVMS Viruses (virii)?

» close window

The Question is:

We have MX 5.1 as mail server on an Alpha OpenVMs 7.2 system. We are looking to
 filter mail with attachments that contains viruses (using tools like amavis).
 Is there any solution on OpenVMS platform to reach our goal?

The Answer is :

  Please contact the maintainer of MX for assistance and suggestions
  with that package.
  Please also see the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section
  entitled "Are there any known viruses for OpenVMS?".
  The OpenVMS Wizard is unfamiliar with any OpenVMS viruses found in the
  wild nor with any infection vectors involving typical OpenVMS mail
  clients, though there are third-party packages (Sophos markets one
  such package) available that scan OpenVMS disks for viruses that target
  Microsoft platforms.
