antivirus quarantine

Configure the antivirus file quarantine options. FortiGate units with a hard disk or a connection to a FortiAnalyzer unit can quarantine files. FortiGate features such as virus scanning can also quarantine files.

note icon MM1, MM3, MM4, and MM7 traffic types are only supported in FortiOS Carrier.

Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

agelimit <hours>

Note: This entry is only available when destination is set to either disk or FortiAnalyzer.

Set the age limit in hours for how long files are kept in quarantine. Set the range between 0-479 (or no limit to just under 20 days). The default is 0.

destination {NULL | disk | FortiAnalyzer}

Set the destination where files are quarantined:

  • NULL: No files are quarantined.
  • disk: Files are quarantined using the FortiGate's hard disk (if present).
  • FortiAnalyzer: Files are quarantined using a FortiAnalyzer.

If the FortiGate has a hard disk, the default is disk. If no hard disk is available, the default is NULL.

drop-blocked {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | nntp | imaps | smtps | pop3s | https | ftps | mapi | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

Drop blocked files found in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, no files are dropped.

drop-heuristic {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | nntp | imaps | smtps | pop3s | https | ftps | mapi | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

Drop files found by heuristic scanning in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, no files are dropped.

drop-infected {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

For FortiOS Carrier, drop intercepted files found in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, no files are dropped.

lowspace {drop-new | ovrw-old}

Select the method for handling additional quarantined files when the FortiGate hard disk is running out of space:

  • drop-new: Drop new quarantine files.
  • ovrw-old: Overwrite the oldest file, or lowest TTL (set by default).

maxfilesize <mb>

Specify the maximum file size to quarantine in megabytes. Set the range between 0-500. 0 (set by default) means unlimited.

quarantine-quota <mb>

Set the antivirus quarantine quota in megabytes, which is the amount of disk space to reserve for quarantining files. The maximum limit depends on the FortiGate's total disk space. 0 (set by default) means unlimited.

store-blocked {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | nntp | imaps | smtps | pop3s | https | ftps | mapi | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

Quarantine blocked files found in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, all protocols are specified.

store-heuristic {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | nntp | imaps | smtps | pop3s | https | ftps | mapi | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

Quarantine files found by heuristic scanning in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, all protocols are specified.

store-infected {imap | smtp | pop3 | http | ftp | nntp | imaps | smtps | pop3s | https | ftps | mapi | mm1 | mm3 | mm4 | mm7}

Quarantine virus infected files found in traffic for the specified protocols. By default, all protocols are specified.

antivirus quarantine

Configure the antivirus file quarantine options. FortiGate units with a hard disk or a connection to a FortiAnalyzer unit can quarantine files. FortiGate features such as virus scanning can also quarantine files.
