    VSE 8.8 P1 + Safe end

      Hello all


      i know this doesnt affect alot of people...


      we use safe end in conjunction with mcafee and i was planning to update to P1

      i got this mail from safe end just before the upgrade


      What happened ?
      McAfee have released recently a patch to their Virus Scan  8.8  version.

      This patch , also known as patch 1(build was detected by some of our customers as affecting the Safend Encryptor Product in a way that prevents users from accessing their encrypted data. Following Safend’s R&D team analysis, we believe there is an issue with this patch that changes the Operating System settings in a way that prevents the Safend Encryptor File System Driver and likely additional software from functioning properly.


      How to solve the problem ?
      The best way is NOT to apply this patch until McAfee fixes the problem and issues clarifications and/or a new patch.
      If you have already applied the patch, it is recommended to roll back to last known good state wherever possible.





      ive asked their support but they say its a mcafee issue.. can someone (from mcafee hopefully)

      say if there is a solution to this ?

          Patch 1 adds a new Access protection rule that prevenst third party applications from hooking into McAfee. You can try looking at your Access protection logs to see if anything is in there.

            We are experiencing the same issue with Credant encryption software with patch1 deployed.  User's cannot access a large amount of their data.


            Any Solutions where patch 1 is deployed?
