Looking for DAT v9350 for testing

I'm looking for a DAT file v9350 for testing of a compromised, isolated machine here in our lab.  I'm trying to prove that misconfigured settings caused a failure to catch a malicious file, not the DAT file itself.  I have confirmed that DAT version 9350 catches the malicious file in question, so I want to do a like-for-like test, our current DATs are 9355, so I don't want to update the compromised machine.

 

Thanks!

Re: Looking for DAT v9350 for testing

[Sadly, my response may be too late for you to obtain DAT 9350 directly from McAfee]

If your environment allows roll-back of DATs -- by enabling DAT file downgrades -- then see which DAT is located in your Previous branch in ePO.

Otherwise, you might find it in this folder on some systems:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\Engine\OldEngine

Finally, McAfee allows direct downloading of DATs from various locations, such as these:

http://update.nai.com/products/commonupdater/current/vscandat1000/dat/0000/
http://update.nai.com/products/commonupdater/
http://update.nai.com/products/datfiles/4.x/
http://update.nai.com/products/datfiles/v3dat/

You could setup a daily batch script to download the .zip (and .tar) files from any of these locations for your dev environment. That way you'd ensure to have a collection of any DAT for false-positive and regression testing in the future.

While the info above may not gain you direct access to DAT 9350 for testing, I hope this info helps, nonetheless.

Thanks for the reply @LeeHarvey , unfortunately we have moved on from this in the time allowed but that information is helpful in the future.
