SAS Plugin for UBCD4WIN not finding malware

Recommended Posts

I am testing a compiled ISO of UBCD4WIN and am using the preconfigured SAS plugin for virus scanning. I have installed some malware to a virtual machine and am booting into the PE environment on said VM in an attempt to remove the malware "externally" via SAS. The only problem is that SAS is not detecting ANY of the malware in the PE environment! As an attempt at a control group, I installed SAS in normal mode in the vm's OS (windows XP) and ran SAS. SAS detects all of the malware in regular mode.

I noticed that when SAS runs in UBCD-PE, it doesn't show it's definitions as updated. Might this be my problem? If so, how can I place update definition files so that SAS will be able to recognize current threats from the PE environment?
