Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i - HotFix 464768

FYI, McAfee has released a hotfix to address the issues below. This hotfix requires that you install Patch 1 first.

Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i

HotFix 464768

HotFix Release: 5-19-2009
This release was developed for use with: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1

Make sure you have the correct version of the product(s) in this list before using this release.

Purpose

This release is based on McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1 and includes all of the issues resolved in that release. This Hotfix extends McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1 to address the issues described under Resolved issues.

Resolved issues in this release of the software are described below:

1. Issue: In an attempt to produce less overhead for some process-heavy tasks, some customers were
disabling Access Protection and Buffer Overflow. The drivers remained loaded but not active, causing little
change in performance. (Reference: 465506)

Resolution: Disabling the Access Protection and Buffer Overflow drivers now yields the expected
performance increase.

2. Issue: The on-access scanner did not properly time out when scanning large archives.
This could lead to the Filename Version

mfeann.exe 14.1.0.499
McShield.exe 14.1.0.499
mytilus3_worker.dll 14.1.0.496
OtlkScan.dll 14.1.0.506
mfevtps.exe 14.1.0.554
mfevtpa.dll 14.1.0.554
mfetdik.sys 14.1.0.554
mferkdet.sys 14.1.0.554
mferkda.dll 14.1.0.554
mfehidk.sys 14.1.0.554
mfehidin.exe 14.1.0.554
mfehida.dll 14.1.0.554
mfebopk.sys 14.1.0.554
mfebopa.dll 14.1.0.554
mfeavfk.sys 14.1.0.554
mfeavfa.dll 14.1.0.554
mfeapfk.sys 14.1.0.554
mfeapfa.dll 14.1.0.554
system failing to copy files. (Reference: 464768)

Resolution: The on-access scanner service now successfully times out at the length specified in the user
interface.

3. Issue: When the on-delivery Outlook scanner received emails to scan, some keyboard entry could be lost.

(Reference: 480992)

Resolution: The Outlook scanner now handles the on-delivery scan of an email on Microsoft Outlook, and
caches the keys entered during that time.

4. Issue: On 32-bit systems, the Access Protection rule "Prevent termination of McAfee processes" was being improperly disabled, even when the managed policy specified otherwise. (Reference: 481687)
Resolution: The HotFix installer resolves this issue by removing the rule file that should have only been
installed on 64-bit systems.

NOTE: This issue has also been resolved in fully released Patch 1 installer. The HotFix resolves the issue for customers who installed Patch 1 during the managed release cycle.

Installation instructions

Installation prerequisites

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1
NOTE: The VirusScan 8.7i Patch 1 must be installed in your ePolicy Orchestrator repository and deployed to the system prior to installing the HotFix.

RE: Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i - HotFix 464768

These fixes are nice, but I really have my thoughts in installing them in this way.
There is nowehere visible on the client that this fix is indeed installed.
Nothing in the Console, nothing in add/remove program.
Why oh why McAfee don't you create a Windows Installer patch (.msp) of these hotfixes???

This makes it unmanageable and if we want to use it, we have to create a MSP ourselfs.

reg, Henno.

I was trying to locate this hotfix and couldn't find a way to download it. Checking another thread, it was mentioned that the hotfix is inside the zip file for VSE 8.7i Patch 1. I checked the zip file and indeed it is included as a seperate zip file.

RE: Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i - HotFix 464768


But file versions between hotfix and patch are different.

RE: Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i - HotFix 464768



From the release notes: This release was developed for use with: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1

So patch1 does not contain the hotfix!

RE: Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i - HotFix 464768

And the patch fails to apply on my VSE 8.7i Patch 1 install...

Did comment in another thread regarding this last night, but can't find the thread now.
