Q: How do I uninstall Sophos Central for Linux

Starting July of 2021, IS&T has migrated to a new version of Sophos called Sophos Central. MIT users have until the summer of 2022 before the old version will stop receiving updates. This page references the new version of Sophos. You can see documentation for legacy Sophos here and download the newest version of Sophos here.
  1. To uninstall Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux, run the uninstall script:
    sudo /opt/sophos-av/
  2. If the savd daemon is running, the script prompts you to stop it
  3. Congrats. You have uninstalled Sophos Central.
