"Wanna" ransomware outbreak. Please see this Sophos article sophos.com/kb/126733 for advice on how to protect your organization. Immediate action recommended.
If you are running low on disk space in the partition where PureMessage is installed, you can relocate the PureMessage quarantine and log directories to a different partition that has sufficient disk space.
In the steps below, operations that must be performed by the root user are indicated by the "#" prompt. Operations that must be performed by the PureMessage user (by default, "pmx") are indicated by the "$" prompt. The instructions assume that PureMessage is installed in the default location of /opt/pmx. Alter the path as necessary.
Note: These steps do not apply to the PostgreSQL database; they only apply to the message stores and log directories on individual PureMessage servers.
To relocate the quarantine and log directories:
$ pmx stop
# mkdir -p /sde1/opt/pmx/var# cp -Rp /opt/pmx/var/qdir /sde1/opt/pmx/var/qdir# cp -Rp /opt/pmx/var/log /sde1/opt/pmx/var/log# chown pmx:pmx /sde1/opt/pmx/var# ls -l /sde1/opt/pmx/var
drwxrwxr-x 5 pmx pmx 4096 Nov 20 08:23 logdrwxrwxr-x 8 pmx pmx 4096 Nov 20 08:23 qdir
$ mv /opt/pmx/var/qdir /opt/pmx/var/qdir.old$ mv /opt/pmx/var/log /opt/pmx/var/log.old
