E-FTP: Virus Scanning Enhancement in PeopleTools 8.53
Last updated on AUGUST 02, 2017
Applies to:PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.53 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In pre-8.53 versions of PeopleTools, few virus scanner were supported (Symantec being the most used) because the code was not configurable enough in order to accommodate a wide range of ICAP-compatible scanners. We supported only virus scanners that returned an error response (e.g. 401) when a virus was found and not virus scanners that returned 200 OK but also returned a header that indicated the fact that a virus was found.
For example, BlueCoat ProxyAv is always sending 200 OK even if the file contains a virus. BlueCoat ProxyAv is sending a “X-Virus” header with the virus details, and that was not recognized by the code.
