Overnight, MajorSophos script fired via cron as normal and downloaded
the latest Sophos (4.28) installing via the install scripts in
Mailscanner as usual.
At this point, Sophos stopped working completely
# /opt/MailScanner/lib/sophos-wrapper /usr/local/Sophos
Error initialising detection engine - missing part of virus data
I've tried completely removing /usr/local/Sophos and reinstalling, but
get the same error. I'm presuming it can see the ide directory, as
without it I instead get the error
Error initialising detection engine - missing main virus data
It's as though the virus data itself is nerfed in this release. Perhaps
I can get an older version from somewhere and use more ide files until
the next release, though the Sophos website is unhelpful in this regard.
Has anyone the same problem, or a brilliant idea?
