F-PROT Antivirus version 6.2.1.4252 (built: 2008-04-28T16-44-10)

Engine version: 4.4.4.56
Virus signatures: 200806021748d9e53873896ea96bd4e8a470344c25b5
                  (/opt/f-prot/antivir.def)

Scanning: -

^^ at this point the scanner gets stuck in an infinite loop and will not
finish or continue to other files if told to scan a directory.

If you use F-PROT you probably won't be reading this on account of
your scanner hanging, woops.
