It sounds like great moment to re-consider what you have been using.
Kaspersky is KGB guy (not ex-KGB, is he will say, as in this kind of
service there is no "ex", you retire from that service dead, feet first
dead). Now, think about your users whose files, with potentially
confidential information will be accessible to proprietary code created
by/for one or the other intelligence agency (I don't distinguish here KGB,
CIA, MI-6, Siguranza,...)

Open source scanners, (especially community created like clamav) would be
much saner choice. To mention one commercial choice I used on Windows
systems: AVG. But on Unix, clamav, definitely.

Just my $0.02
