"Wanna" ransomware outbreak. Please see this Sophos article sophos.com/kb/126733 for advice on how to protect your organization. Immediate action recommended.
Sophos does not provide TBPs (Talpa Binary Packs) for all Linux kernels. This article describes how to install the necessary prerequisites and create TBPs for other kernels, without the need to install additional tools on each computer.
This builds a custom TBP which should be located in /opt/sophos-av/talpa/compiled. It will be called something like talpa-binpack-centos_2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.tar.gz
Option 1. Add a TBP to a Unix/Linux-mounted CID:
/opt/sophos-av/update/addextra /opt/sophos-av/talpa/compiled/talpa-binpack-centos_2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.tar.gz /opt/SUM/CIDs/S000/savlinux/ --signing-key=/root/certificates/extrafiles-signing.key --signing-certificate=/root/certificates/extrafiles-signing.crt
/opt/sophos-av/update/addextra /opt/sophos-av/talpa/compiled/talpa-binpack-centos_2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.tar.gz /opt/sophos-av/update/cache/Primary/ --signing-key=/root/certificates/extrafiles-signing.key --signing-certificate=/root/certificates/extrafiles-signing.crt
