Disable real-time scanning on F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac
View disable-oas.sh
#!/bin/sh -e
# Running this script will disable the on-access (real-time) scanner in F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac
# while preserving the ability to use the on-demand (manual) scanner.
#
# Note that this *will* make the UI persistently tell you that there is a problem with real-time
# scanning. Which is true, because you disabled it. :-)
#
# NOTE THAT THIS WILL MAKE YOUR COMPUTER UNPROTECTED. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
# NOTE THAT THIS WILL MAKE A BACKUP COPY IN YOUR "Documents" FOLDER. KEEP IT.
# NOTE THAT THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED HACK. IT MAY STOP WORKING AT ANY TIME.
