The only post I found with the string "macro" in the subject is this one:

https://forum.iredmail.org/topic12419-f … ed-on.html

However, I don't have "OLE2BlockMacros" in my /etc/clamd.d/scan.conf file, which appears to be the "clamd.conf" file on my system.

How should I ensure that attachments containing macros are blocked, because it seems they are not.

Thanks.

Re: Blocking macros

Add it in file /etc/clamd.d/amavis.conf.

Re: Blocking macros

OK, thanks. Are the actions logged somewhere so that I can check that it's working?

Re: Blocking macros

ClamAV logs to /var/log/clamav/.

Re: Blocking macros

Hi Zhang,

Another old topic I am finally getting back to. I did add "OLE2BlockMacros yes" to the bottom of /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf (not amavis.conf, as I assumed that was an error) and restarted amavisd, but there is no log at /var/log/clamav/. I grepped /var/log/* for ClamAV output, but I didn't get any of the kind of output that I would have expected related to scanning attachments.

Any suggestions for somewhere else to find ClamAV logging? Thanks.

Re: Blocking macros

You should restart "clamd@amavisd" service instead of "amavisd".

Re: Blocking macros

Thanks for the suggestion, but that doesn't create any logs at /var/log/clamav/ . There are no logs at this location on my Pro server either.

Re: Blocking macros

Any related log in /var/log/messages?

Re: Blocking macros

The only ClamAV-related log lines in /var/log/messages seem to be these repeating twice a day:
