       This manual page documents briefly the update_virus_scanners options.

       This manual page was written for the Debian(TM) distribution because
       the original program does not have a manual page.

       update_virus_scanners is helper script for MailScanner, a freely
       distributable E-Mail gateway virus scanner and spam detector.
       update_virus_scanners tests which virus scanners are installed and
       tries to update them.

       To find installed virus scanners update_virus_scanners uses the list of
       virus scanners, their wrappers and location, in
       /etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf. To update a virus scanner it
       calls the correspondig update scipt in /etc/MailScanner/autoupdate/.
