How can I whitelist some files?

Hello everbody,

I have some files in my clouds which are installer for windows. For example driver for printer and so an which I don´t want to search everytime in the www.

One is wrongly detected as a virus:

Fatal files_antivirus Infected file found (during background scan) Win.Virus.Ramnit-7537604-0 File: 1268538Account: *** Path: /***/files/Installer/Labelprinter Q710 Treiber.zip

It´s spamming my activities and my logs and I think that is a bad behavior for my enviroment (Makes MySQL and logs large…).

Can I whitelist this file in any way? Maybe as clamav exception or directly in the nextcloud app Anti Virus?

Cheers.

I think this is the wrong place to search for an answer on your question, because the mentioned app relies on clamav, an external anti-virus scanner. Therefore you should e.g. ask aunt G. for an answer:

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=clamav+whitelist+file

@STrike STrike
You can zip it in another archive.
Perhaps you must use a password.
Then you can hide every virus.
For security reason do not allow upload zip-files with passwords :wink:

Why do you think this is the wrong place for an answer? Year I know this is based on clamav, but maybe another user has the same question. And I can´t find another support platform for the scanner, but the Nextcloud app is based on it.
I searched of course bevore I posted my question.

@devnull I think to use multi zips is annoying and for me a not wanted behavior to do that.

Back to whitelistings:
I found this wiki:
http://www.owlbearconsulting.com/doku.php?id=linux_wiki:clamav

Whitelist a File

To whitelist a file:

Generate a md5 signature for the file and append it to the file whitelist

sigtool --md5 /data/testfile >> /var/lib/clamav/whitelist-files.fp

 The entry will look like this

 cat /var/lib/clamav/whitelist-files.fp
   
  d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e:0:testfile

     Fields are → MD5sum:Filesize:Comment

I got the following entry:
7c9b6333b5be72f257a883b608b28f48:16620045:Labelprinter Q710 Treiber.zip

Actually I try it without the .zip ending. I’ll let you know if it works.
I use the clamav user for the daemon service. The file whitelist-files.fp has the root:root permission like the other files, see screenshot.

Edit:

Tested it now with clamscan:
clamscan /var/www/nextcloud/data/XX/Labelprinter\ Q710\ Treiber.zip
/var/www/nextcloud/data/XX/Labelprinter Q710 Treiber.zip: OK

Its not infected now, but nextcloud with clamav daemon is still recognizing it as a virus.

did you know there is extra ClamAV options inside the Admin Settings -> Security page.

you can add a custom regex rule there like :

Scanner output /.*.(31cd5e66d1866aacfcb5291d131f37be:94208) FOUND$/ not checked

I have not tried this myself and do not know how this will appear in your log.

I got the following SQL Error in my Log files and the change will not commited. After reloading the page it is still not there.

Please What database are you using and what version of NC and ClamAV
also please

php -m
clamd --version

I have got the Eicar test file and have been able to allow it to be uploaded. the regex need to be adjusted and there is a issue with the safety.

ISSUE: The regex length in the db is only 64 char.
it seems not to accept the complete sting nor code it only registers the NAME

the rexeg that did NOT work for me

/.*Eicar-Test-Signature(69630e4574ec6798239b091cda43dca0:69) FOUND$/

and also NOT WORKING

/.*(69630e4574ec6798239b091cda43dca0:69) FOUND$/

the regex that DID WORK

/.*Eicar-Test-Signature(.*) FOUND$/

also the last dropdown box should be the first option clean or Aufräumen

for your file the working regex would be

/.*Win.Virus.Ramnit-7537604-0.* FOUND$/

but it seems something is not right I did not got any errors entering the regex

ClamAV 0.102.4/25909/Mon Aug 24 15:26:24 2020

Thats true, I saw that only in the logs of nextcloud. Nextcloud 18.0.7

I included the whitelist.fp and during scans in console its working with the whitelist, but not in nextcloud.

10.4.14-MariaDB-1:10.4.14+maria~bionic

EDIT: I tried now
/.Win.Virus.Ramnit-7537604-0. FOUND$/
but this setting will also not be saved.

When you enter the rule there is a check mark in front to save it. Did you press it so it’s saved ?

Edit. You need to include the * as wildcard

/.*Win.Virus.Ramnit-7537604-0.* FOUND$/

Sorry the discourse format edited my style above. Year I included the * as wildcard.

When I try to click on the check mark nothing happens.
Tried it now with MS Edge Version 84.0.522.63 (Offizielles Build) (64-Bit) and it is working, but I also got the above MySQL error.

Firefox 79.0 (64-Bit) was not successful in adding new exceptions.
I give it a try, but I think in the end its a semi solution, because the file exceptions are still not working.
I give you later an answer.
Your entry didn´t worked. I try now this:
/.*:Win.Virus.Ramnit-7537604-0.* FOUND$/

Sill not working with latest v3.0.0.

So I opened an issue:
