====

Yesterday we upgraded from Debian 8 to Debian 9. We had to put that fix for iredadmin uwsgi that is writen in some other topic in the forum.

But, we started to recieve every 12minutes EICAR test mail. I have checked all crons, disabled apache(thought fake sender sent over roundcube) and still cannot find what is sending EICAR test every 12minutes. Weird. Here is the log:

Any clue?

- Try to search text "VACXEPpAcJ_DcX" (the one used in message-id) against all files on this server, seems it's hard-coded.
- Please show us full mail headers of this quarantined email.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: EICAR email sent every 12minutes and quarantined

Found it. You can delete this topic as it is irrelevant. Some old plugin for zabbix to monitor amavisd, installed 10 years ago and forgotten by maintainers. Don't know why it started sending emails after upgrade to Stretch and not preStretch. Could be perl libs got fixed  again in Stretch :-D
