Anti Virus

Viruses and malware can create havoc quickly on your servers and on your users’ computers. While you’re users should obviously have protection installed on their machines, it is always a good idea to have server side protection enable as well.

Moodle comes with an anti-virus option all ready to go – the open source Clam AV. To enable it, first make sure that the Clam AV software is install on your server, then simply have an administrator head to Settings > Site administration > Security > Anti-Virus.

If you have any questions check out the anti-virus section over at Moodle.org.
