Each RSA Authentication Manager instance includes Clam Antivirus (ClamAV) software. ClamAV is an open-source software toolkit that is intended to reduce the risk of intrusion or malicious system or data access. Apply software updates to ClamAV only as part of RSA-delivered updates. You are responsible for updating antivirus definition files and running ClamAV in order to scan any Authentication Manager instance for known malware.

Log on to the appliance with the User ID rsaadmin and the current operating system password:
On a hardware appliance, an Amazon Web Services appliance, or an Azure appliance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client.
On a VMware virtual appliance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client, or the VMware vSphere client.
On a Hyper-V virtual appliance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client, the Hyper-V System Center Virtual Machine Manager Console, or the Hyper-V Manager.
