To keep up with all the mutations out there it tries to update itself frequently. B default, Plesk sends the system admin an email when this happens – no matter if Dr. Web was successful or if there was a problem.
This is what a sample email looks like:
/etc/cron.daily/drweb-update: Dr.Web update details: Update server: http://update.us1.drweb.com/plesk/700/unix Update has begun at Thu May 17 03:37:07 2011 Update has finished at Thu May 17 03:38:16 2011 Following files have been updated: /var/drweb/bases/drwdaily.vdb /var/drweb/bases/drwtoday.vdb /var/drweb/bases/dwmtoday.vdb /var/drweb/bases/dwntoday.vdb /var/drweb/bases/dwrtoday.vdb /var/drweb/bases/timestamp /var/drweb/updates/timestamp
Multiply that email by the number of servers you’re looking after, and you’ll soon have an overflowing inbox.
Here’s the solution: tweak a system file and divert those emails to nowhere.
