Automatic Update of McAfee maintained lists

Jump to solution

The product guide for MWG (for 7.3.2 Rev A, pages 89 and 90) says: "For subscribed lists that are maintained on the McAfee server, you must perform updates manually".

Is this still true? What is the reason for this?

For example: the list "Known CAs" ist McAfee maintained. At some point in the past DigiNotar vanished from this list for obvious reasons. If someone manually updated the McAfee maintained lists before that point in time, his users would still be vulnerable to DigiNotar signed certificates. This somehow defeats the lists purpose.

Regards,

Robert

P.S.: Is this discussion forum searchable somehow (besides using Google)?

This is inaccurate, these lists are updated every 24 hours.

There is a search bar at the top of the page that I use and is useful.

Thank you. I think you will have that product guide updated. :-)

Concerning that search bar: thank you for that too. I never considered it to be a search bar for lack of the word "search" nearby or at least an icon of a magnifying glass ...

Hi Robert,

I will ask that the wording be changed. To provide better context, the full context says:

"For list content that is retrieved from the McAfee server, you must perform updates manually. Each time you perform a manual update, all McAfee-maintained lists are updated together."

This should really just say that everytime an automatic update is performed, the subscribed lists are updated as needed.

Best,

Jon
