I am required by my VPN software to have Sophos anti-virus installed and running. However, when I'm NOT on VPN, I don't want it running at all - I want it dead.
However, killing the tasks is ineffective:
ps -ax | grep -i soph 40972 ?? 0:07.34 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/SophosAutoUpdate.app/Contents/MacOS/SophosAutoUpdate -d 41069 ?? 28:08.48 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/InterCheck.app/Contents/MacOS/InterCheck -d 41078 ?? 0:02.42 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/SophosAntiVirus.app/Contents/MacOS/SophosAntiVirus -d $ sudo kill 40972 41069 41078 41084 $ ps -ax | grep -i soph 44344 ?? 0:00.03 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/SophosAutoUpdate.app/Contents/MacOS/SophosAutoUpdate -d 44345 ?? 0:00.02 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/SophosAntiVirus.app/Contents/MacOS/SophosAntiVirus -d 44347 ?? 0:03.03 /Library/Sophos Anti-Virus/InterCheck.app/Contents/MacOS/InterCheck -d
It just automatically restarts. What do I need to do to prevent that?
