vbupgrade - upgrades the VirusBuster database and optionally the engine


vbupgrade [-v verbosity level] [-u upgrade_selection] [-f] [-V] [-s] [-h]


vbupgrade upgrades the VirusBuster database and optionally the engine too which are used by Zorp Professional to filter the contents of the incoming and the outgoing traffic. On the first run vbupgrade filters the relevant content of the /etc/apt/sources.list file into /etc/zorp/vbuster.conf, and uses only those lines, which are suitable to upgrade the VirusBuster packages. If /etc/zorp/vbuster.list is empty, then vbupgrade will exit with an error message. You can edit this file manually, the changes will be preserved.

vbupgrade was designed to run regularly as a cron job. However, you can run it manually if you want - it is recommended to run with a higher verbosity level to track down upgrading problems.


-v verbosity_level

-u upgrade_selection
With this parameter you can control whether the database will be upgraded only or the engine too. 1: upgrade the database only, 2: upgrade the database and the engine
Force the execution of vbupgrade, with this option you can override the HRS setting in /etc/zorp/vbuster.options.
