    Serious mfevtps.exe memory leak in Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0

      Hey guys

       

      I have to report a serious mfevtps.exe memory leak issue in HIP 8.0. The client system is Windows 7 SP1 x64. Please see the screenshot below.

      You can clearly see that this process consumes more than 1GB of memory, which by any definition is abnormal. I have noticed similar cases several times before, but none of them are such serious. I searched on the internet and found that the release note for HIP 7.0 Patch 5 has address this issue. I wonder if McAfee notice the same problem in HIP 8 and are working on a solution in Patch 1.

       

      Thank you.
