there are some memonry leaks and self protection flaws in VSE 8.8 ( https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB72032 )
what is the ETA for Patch 1?
And why is the hotfix not publicly available, as it is a security fix? I know it's "only a hotfix", but...
I would like the hotfix to be public too.
However it is being disseminated via Support at this time. You will need to contact your account manager or support contacts, or open a service request online, just be clear your looking for hotfix 660014 (or refer to the KB articles etc) to ensure the request is handled in a timely manner.
