How to Update McAfee Default HIPS 8 IPS Rules

Greetings,

I see on one network my version of the McAfee Default HIPS 8 IPS rules and another version on my other network.

Is there somewhere I can download the most recent McAfee Default policy for import into my other network?

Thanks!

The only way to update the Default HIPS policies is to download the latest Host IPS Content into the ePO Master Repository.

Just found out HIPS 8 server extensions were not updated since the server was built in early 2012.  There is at least one newer extension for 2013 that we'll have the admin load.  Hopefully the additional signatures we're looking for will be included in that new extension.

HIPS extensions contain a specific (default) build of the HIPS Content.  If you're looking for specific signatures, make sure you have the latest HIPS Content checked in (not the Extension specifically).  I believe the latest HIPS Extension 8.0.3.762 includes the 8.0.0.3693 Content.  Current content build is 8.0.0.5247.
