      Release Notes for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i

      HotFix 464768

      HotFix Release: 5-19-2009
      This release was developed for use with: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1

      Make sure you have the correct version of the product(s) in this list before using this release.

      Purpose

      This release is based on McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1 and includes all of the issues resolved in that release. This Hotfix extends McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 1 to address the issues described under Resolved issues.

      Resolved issues in this release of the software are described below:

      1. Issue: In an attempt to produce less overhead for some process-heavy tasks, some customers were
      disabling Access Protection and Buffer Overflow. The drivers remained loaded but not active, causing little
      change in performance. (Reference: 465506)

      Resolution: Disabling the Access Protection and Buffer Overflow drivers now yields the expected
      performance increase.

      2. Issue: The on-access scanner did not properly time out when scanning large archives.
      This could lead to the Filename Version

      mfeann.exe 14.1.0.499
      McShield.exe 14.1.0.499
      mytilus3_worker.dll 14.1.0.496
      OtlkScan.dll 14.1.0.506

      system failing to copy files. (Reference: 464768)

      Resolution: The on-access scanner service now successfully times out at the length specified in the user
      interface.

      3. Issue: When the on-delivery Outlook scanner received emails to scan, some keyboard entry could be lost.

      (Reference: 480992)

      Resolution: The Outlook scanner now handles the on-delivery scan of an email on Microsoft Outlook, and
      caches the keys entered during that time.

      4. Issue: On 32-bit systems, the Access Protection rule "Prevent termination of McAfee processes" was being improperly disabled, even when the managed policy specified otherwise. (Reference: 481687)
      Resolution: The HotFix installer resolves this issue by removing the rule file that should have only been
      installed on 64-bit systems.

      NOTE: This issue has also been resolved in fully released Patch 1 installer. The HotFix resolves the issue for customers who installed Patch 1 during the managed release cycle.
