When you check in SharePoint | Central Administration | Operations | Timer Job Status, the 'Virus Scanner Update' shows a status of 'Failed', despite the fact that Sophos Anti-Virus has successfully updated.
First seen in Sophos for Microsoft SharePoint
This issue arises as a result of the SharePoint update job functionality, and is unconnected to Sophos AutoUpdate.
