As many BitDefender Antivirus Scanner for Unices users have noticed, attempting to run the command line tool (bdscan) or the GUI application will result in an unexpected segmentation fault. The issue is caused by an incompatibility between the latest antivirus engines retrieved through update and the their platform specific component (bdcore.so) which currently cannot be updated.
