Mirroring the BitDefender update server

The product updates are done by downloading the new files from some update locations found on the update server (default: upgrade.bitdefender.com), to some local paths where the product can find and use them.

The update locations are version and product specific. For example, BitDefender-common-3.0.2-1 (part of both BitDefender Security for Mail Servers and BitDefender Security for Samba version 3.0.x) uses the following update locations: linux-gcc3x-i586-common-302 and update_is_90. For the exact values, see the output of the command:

# bdsafe live
