DTAVSEL-205 - A notification mechanism or process must be in place to notify Administrators of out of date DAT, detected malware and error codes.
Failure of anti-virus signature updates will eventually render the software to be useless in protecting the Linux system from malware. Administration notification for failed updates, via SMTP, will ensure timely remediation of errors causing DATs to not be updated. NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
Configure Automatic Response to capture all required event descriptions and to send email notifications to the System Administrator(s).
