DTAVSEL-010 - The McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux 1.9.x/2.0.x On-Access scanner must be configured to scan all file types.
When scanning for malware, excluding specific file types will increase the risk of a malware-infected file going undetected. By configuring anti-virus software to scan all file types, the scanner has a higher success rate at detecting and eradicating malware.
From a desktop browser window, connect to the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux (VSEL) Monitor (WEB interface) of the Linux system being reviewed and logon with the nails user account. In the VSEL WEB Monitor, under 'Configure', select 'On-Access Settings'. Select the 'Edit' button. Under 'Extension Base Scanning', select the 'Scan all files' radio button. Click 'Apply'.
