Looks like either we disable the scanning or we require a patch for this soon?

SM is using the 0.104 build of Clam, which is EoL and not getting patched as per https://blog.clamav.net/. So they'll have to switch to a newer Clam version, which ideally would be a LTS release. Plus with the SM beta being their focus, I don't expect they'll addresses this in the current SM build.

A solution could be to install your own up-to-date version of ClamAV (such as the ClamAV 1.0.1 MSI) locally on the SmarterMail server, to use in place of SmarterMail’s built-in ClamAV:
  1. Copy SmarterMail’s existing clamd.conf and freshclam.conf configuration files to ClamAV’s installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\SmarterTools\SmarterMail\Service\Clam\etc to C:\Program Files\ClamAV)
  2. Update the configuration files as needed (mainly the database and log directories, and localhost port from 3310 to be able to verify your installation is being used)
  3. Install clamd and freshclam’s Windows Services through the terminal and set them to Automatically start in Services.
  4. In SmarterMail’s administrator area under Settings>Antivirus, change the port to the localhost port you chose above, and “ClamAV is on a remote server” (otherwise SmarterMail will use its own copy).
  5. Try sending an email with the EICAR test file, and check your ClamAV installation’s log for a line like this to verify all’s working as before, but with your own up-to-date copy of ClamAV (which can be heavily customized now too):
instream(127.0.0.1@XXXXX): Win.Test.EICAR_HDB-1 FOUND

Sorry…. 

Every year I pay a lot of money for the license. For over 10 years. Why is there no patch from Smartermail?

Smartertools is obliged to react quickly here. No, we are not even informed about this security gap here as customers. Is this the service we pay for every year?

If you haven't manually updated ClamAV, we just released a public Build that addresses this. You can find it here: https://www.smartertools.com/smartermail/downloads

If I was ST, I would just remove the build-in ClamAV from SM, its garbage, takes a ton of resources to be "okish". Leave remote ClamAV and users can setup their own remote (or local) installs of ClamAV if they want to use it.

Question: Should we disable ClamAV in the settings until we can install the update later this week?

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin, 

Yes. I would advise that you disable ClamAV in the Antivirus settings until the build with the ClamAV update has been applied. 

Public Build 8451 (from the SmarterTools Downloads page) is available now and can be installed on your production server. 

For those who are participating in the BETA with a test server, please note that a new BETA build will be available in the near future and will be announced on the BETA Welcome thread.
