HotFix Release Notes

HotFix Version: HF472021

Product: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i

Files affected:
   MFEHIDK.SYS   13.3.0.179
   mfetdik.sys   13.3.0.179
   SCRIPTCL.DLL  13.3.2.140
   SCRIPTSN.DLL  13.3.2.140
   SHSTAT.EXE    8.5.0.939
   VSTSKMGR.EXE  8.5.0.939

IMPROVEMENTS

1. When a web browser opens a site that is
   script-intensive, scanning the scripts adds to
   the delay of loading the page. This Patch
   contains new functionality for ScriptScan
   whitelisting. If the web site is a trusted
   Intranet and/or frequently visited, the new
   implementation now allows for the exclusion of
   that site from script scanning.

   NOTE: Refer to McAfee Support KnowledgeBase
   article KB65382 for further information.


RESOLVED ISSUES

1. Issue:
   On Microsoft Windows Vista SP1 or 2008 server,
   sharing violations could occur when working
   with remote files while network drive scanning
   was enabled. This resulted in being denied
   access to files, or being unable to modify or
   save a file.

   Resolution:
   The Anti-Virus Filter driver has been updated
   to better handle potential sharing violations
   that could occur and avoid conflicts.

2. Issue:
   The ability to clean files, detected on network
   drives by the on-access scanner, could
   encounter sharing violations causing the clean
   to fail.  When this happens, the scanner would
   use the secondary action (delete by default).

   Resolution:
   The Anti-Virus Filter driver has been updated
   to work around some of the inherent limitations
   of network scanning that will cause this
   issue.

3. Issue:
   When a non-administrator account logs into a
   system, high CPU utilization could occur with
   the ShStat.exe process.

   Resolution:
   The VirusScan statistics process will better
   handle its loading logic to avoid looping
   issues that could lead to excess CPU
   utilization.

4. Issue:
   In some cases, the McTaskManager service was
   using excessive amount of CPU time.

   Resolution:
   The McTaskManager service will now delay for a
   short time when retrieving errors and
   communicating to Windows System Monitor.

5. Issue:
   An unauthenticated remote denial-of-service
   attack was discovered.

   Resolution:
   The product no longer allows the
   denial-of-service attack.

6. Issue:
   A Bugcheck (blue screen) sometimes occurred
   when VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i was installed
   along with Quest Downtime server.

   Resolution:
   The mini-firewall driver will better handle
   situations where a process terminates while
   data was still being received on the processes
   behalf.


7. Issue:
   Security Center or Outlook Trust center would
   show that Antivirus software was out of date,
   even when using current DAT files. For the
   latter, a reboot would correct the issue.

   Resolution:
   The McTaskManager Service has been updated
   to keep the Microsoft Security Center informed
   of DAT version.

Notes:
1. This HotFix requires VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i
   Patch 8, in order to install to the system.
2. This HotFix cannot be installed on Windows NT
   4.0 (any edition).
3. A reboot will be needed in order to load the
   updated binary into memory.  The package
   install does not force the reboot.
4. This HotFix cannot be installed using McAfee
   Installation Designer package. Patch 8 is
   requirement for the HotFix to install, and the
   customized installer executes the HotFix before
   the Patch.
5. An administrator can install this release by
   executing VSE85HF472021.EXE locally on an
   individual system, or by adding the package to
   the ePolicy Orchestrator or Protection Pilot
   repository for deployment via an agent update.
