Our Network team said our network circuits were maxed out at several sites. We traced it back at each site to a McAfee distributed repository and a bunch of endpoints. We have not changed our McAfee configuration for at least 6 months without an issue. These specific repositories have been active for years. They said they have seen higher than normal volume starting 3 days early, but it only began causing serious issues with the 10/10/2017 DAT (DAT 8679).
Has anyone else seen an abnormal spike in network utilization related to distributed repository to endpoint communication from 10/06/2017 thru 10/10/2017 (DATs 8675 - 8679)?
