CVE-2020-7265, Mac OS X High Sierra, and ENSM 10.6.4

Jump to solution

Hi,

I see that ENSM 10.5.10 and ENS 10.6.9 were both released to address CVE-2020-7265. I am currently running ENSM 10.6.4 on my Mac OS X High Sierra machines. Anything higher than ENSM 10.6.4, including ENSM 10.6.9, is not supported on Mac OS X High Sierra (https://kc.mcafee.com/agent/index?page=content&id=KB84934). Am I required to downgrade from ENS 10.6 to ENS 10.5 on Mac OS X High Sierra Machines in order that I can get protection from CVE-2020-7265 by installing ENS 10.5.10?

Thanks,

Chris

Hello @cpborders 

Thanks for your response.

Apologies for missing this.

I have checked the Suggested SB and KB:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=SB10316

ENSM 10.5.x - Upgrade to ENSM 10.6.9 or update to ENSM 10.5.10.

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB84934

Operating System Version ENSM 10.1.0-10.2.0 ENSM 10.2.1-10.2.2 ENSM 10.2.3-10.5.0 ENSM 10.5.5-10.5.10 ENSM 10.6.0-10.6.4 ENSM 10.6.5-10.6.9
Catalina 10.15.x    Both Client and Server No No No No No Yes
Mojave 10.14.x1 Both Client and Server No No No Yes Yes Yes
High Sierra 10.13.x Both Client and Server No No Yes Yes Yes No

 

So upgrading to version ENSM 10.5.10 will work for you.

Circling back around here, any thoughts?

What version(s) of ENS are you all running on your Mac OS X High Sierra machines so that they are protected from CVE-2020-7265?

Thank you, @vivs. I had the same reading of the supported versions. So, isn't going from ENS 10.6.4 to ENS 10.5.10 technically a downgrade?

Would an upgrade job to go from ENS 10.6.4 to ENS 10.5.10 even work? When I've had to downgrade in the past (on Windows), I've had to run the removal tool and then reinstall the older version from scratch.

Furthermore, if I ditch 10.6 in favor of 10.5 aren't I shortening the amount of time that I can run a supported version? I imagine that all versions of ENS 10.5.x have an earlier EoL than all versions of 10.6.x.

Technical it is not upgrade.  To be compliances with  CVE-2020-7265, you need to either upgrade OS or remove the existing version and install the supported version of the product

Hello @cpborders 

I imagine that all versions of ENS 10.5.x have an earlier EoL than all versions of 10.6.x. : Not Exactly 

If possible please try to upgrade your OS and install the latest ENSM because in future we will be releasing ENSM 10.7 as well (No ETA) However ENSL 10.7 is already released.

Else please try to install 10.5.10 on the machine and yes the deployment task of ENSM 10.5.10 will may not work on top of 10.6.4 , but if you want you can have that tested.
