    Where should I be looking for the log file that shows the exact info that pops up on the console when I do a system file scan? A scan found a virus, but then sped past on the console and now I can't figure out what virus it found. I've looked everywhere in /var/log, /usr/local/, /etc/, and even grepped everywhere on the system from / looking for "Infected" "Viruses" and "Trojan" and found nothing after a very long time :)

    Thanks,
    Gordon

    It has a bunch of information about bogus zip files, and then the name and locations of several viruses.

    Thanks,

    Code:
    find -name wwwi* -print
    This is the location on my box:
    Code:
