MSME 8.6 ODS and extra.dat

It doesn't appear to be working. I have created a standalone ODS scan with an extra.dat (all updates are from the last few days) installed via ePO however nothing gets removed when running either a full scan or remove virus scan.

Re: MSME 8.6 ODS and extra.dat

An ODS won't remove anything if there are no detections - are you stating there are detections and not being removed?

Extra.dat add capabilities to Dat files and would only enhance AV detection for the specific infections until these are incorporated in main dats.

e.g. this would not change behaviour e.g in dlp & content detection

What detections are  you expecting to see???

Re: MSME 8.6 ODS and extra.dat

I submit viruses to McAfee via email while keeping the original. They send back an extra.dat file. If I have multiple extra.dat for a period of time I merge them all using the online webpage from McAfee. I add the extra.dat into ePO via master repo. I send the extra.dat file to MSME via ePO agent update now function.

I open MSME and confirm that extra drivers is => 1.

I run an ODS scan against the mailbox with the virus I submitted and returns zero items removed.

I just ran an ODS this morning and this time it removed all 500 instances but looks like it didn't use the extra.dat file.
