Operating Principles

The component is designed to address to the Doctor Web Dr.Web Cloud service to scan contents of the specified file for threats unknown to the local Dr.Web Scanning Engine, and to check whether the specified URL belongs to any of the Doctor Web predefined categories of web resources. Besides, the component periodically sends to the Dr.Web Cloud the statistics on infected files detection and information on operating system, on which Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers is run.

Dr.Web CloudD is automatically run by the configuration daemon. The component is run upon receiving a command from the user or one of the Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers components.

This component is used for the requests to the Dr.Web Cloud service for scanning of the user requested URL by the scanning component for the network traffic and URL SpIDer Gate.

Besides that, the component is used during the scanning of files on the command from the Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers management utility from the command line Dr.Web Ctl (it is started by the drweb-ctl command): upon detection of threats, the Dr.Web Scanning Engine scan engine sends a report about the file to Dr.Web Cloud.
