On Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux, using the wildcard '*' with the ExcludeFileOnGlob savconfig option, will cause all of the excluded files to be listed.

This is as expected for a Linux command. The Linux shell expands '*' before passing the arguments to savconfig.

For example, running:

/opt/sophos-av/bin/savconfig ExcludeFileOnGlob /tmp/virus/*

will cause all of the excluded files in the directory /tmp/virus to be listed.
