Known Issues

File System Protection

  • The upgrade from Endpoint Security requires system reboot on Windows endpoints if Advanced Threat Control and the rootkit driver fail to unload.
  • The upgrade from Endpoint Security requires system reboot on Windows XP endpoints if the Firewall module was installed.
  • Removing the Firewall module on Windows XP endpoints requests a system reboot.
  • The Advanced Threat Control module is incompatible with Citrix EdgeSight.

Exchange Protection

  • When two Exchange scan tasks are scanning simultaneously the same mailbox, some emails are not scanned. It is recommended to avoid running more than one Exchange scan at a time.
  • Product updates might stop running Exchange scan tasks, without sending the status change to Control Center.
  • The antimalware footer is not visible in digitally signed emails sent over Microsoft Exchange (MAPI) protocol.
  • When adding UTF-8 footer to an HTML or plain text MIME email with ISO-2022-JP encoding, the converted email may include slightly changed characters. However, this should not affect the overall readability and understanding of the text.


Exchange Protection

  • Exchange on-demand scanning does not work when Powershell v1.0 is installed. In such cases, you must update Powershell to v2.0.
  • Meeting or task request emails cannot be modified.
