    Vulscan - download Spyware updates WITHOUT spyware scan?

    JSMCPN Expert

      Due to the CPU/disk resources needed for spyware scanning, I only do scans by hand from time to time.  I *DO* have realtime scanning enabled on most clients though.

       

      Because manual spyware scans do not happen frequently, the latest spyware definitions do not get updated frequently.

      The only way I have seen that spyware definition updates get pulled by the clients is if a Spyware "Scan and Repair" setting is included in a VULSCAN's command line.

       

      I would very much like to be able to push out new spyware definitions for the realtime scanner without actually performing a VULSCAN spyware scan.

       

      Surely there must be a way??
