If you are using MailScanner version 4, then you should have a cron job in
/etc/cron.hourly which calls my global updater (update_virus_scanners)
which updates all the scanners that are installed. You should have deleted
your cron job to call f-prot/autoupdate when you upgraded from version 3 to 4.
