Wrong AVDatDate on the registry

Hi There,

We have seeing wrong avdatdate registry entry for recent updated DAT under computer\hkey_local_machine\software\McAfee\Avengine location but in computer\hkey_local_machine\software\wow6432Node\McAfee\Avengine every entry is showing correct



Due to this our Vulnerability management software saying the system is outdated even though its updated

Running VSE patch 6.. anybody came across this situation

Re: Wrong AVDatDate on the registry

I note you say you are only on patch 6.

Is this issue across all PCs or just one or a small number ? Can you try updating to a more recent VSE patch on one of the affected systems ?

Another option might be to try downloading DAT executable from McAfee site and running against one of the systems.
