Slow Ring: 2018.12.04

important Important:
  • This version is for Linux operating systems.
  • This version includes on slow ring all the improvements and fixes delivered with Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools version, released on fast ring.

New Features and Improvements

  • Added support for EDR Module to quarantine files.
  • Improved crash handler, featuring better cleanup of crash reports and free space check to avoid consumption of disk space.

Resolved Issues

  • An incompatibility issue between EDR module and DazukoFS prevented On-access scanning from functioning properly.
  • The product now uses static mounts in /etc/fstab for on-access scanning instead of dynamic mounts to prevent file corruption on CentOS 6 and RHEL 6 in some particular circumstances. New directories added to on-access scanning are still mounted immediately. Directories removed from on-access scanning are temporarily excluded from scanning and unmounted gracefully at the first restart.
  • Fixed several issues related to EDR module:
    • The product created large log files.
    • EDR Sensor failed to start after installation on CentOS 6 systems.
    • The bdnc log files were not enabled when running the command bdconfigure enablelogs.
    • Sometimes, the EDR module crashed on CentOS 6.
  • Log files containing lines longer than 2048 characters caused product to crash.
  • Endpoints were not reporting to GravityZone Control Center when connection to Bitdefender Cloud Services failed.
  • The product did not start properly on Linux systems with glibc version earlier than 2.17.

Known issues

  • Several unmount errors are generated at reboot/shutdown for folders /bin and /etc. Machine does not freeze and reboots normally. Older RPM systems might hang on reboot/shutdown.
  • Portable storage devices mounted inside a protected directory are not scanned on-access.
