Run Scan from Terminal

Recommended Posts

I've tried searching the forums here (and elsewhere) for this and while I've found one thread that seems to get close to what I'm looking for, it doesn't quite hit it on the head. I'm wondering if it's possible to run a NOD32 computer scan from the terminal (or to run any other NOD32 functions from terminal for that matter). The reason that I'm try to this is:

when I run an in depth computer scan using the NOD32 GUI, i notice that a lot of files cannot be scanned because NOD32 does not have the permissions to access these files. So my thinking is that if I could run the scan from terminal using sudo, I'd be able to scan these files. My thinking here may be entirely misinformed, so if it is please let me know. I am running Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance!

You can find how to scan from terminal in attached screenshot. I used command ./esets_scan to scan /home directory. Executable binary is in /opt/eset/esets/sbin/ and is called esets_scan
