Endpoint Security for Mac Version 4.1.37.179292 Release Notes

Release date:

Fast ring: 2018.04.04

important   Important:

This update applies to endpoints starting with OS X Mavericks (10.9.5) and higher. OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) is no longer supported, but existing installations will continue to receive signature updates.

New Features and Improvements

  • Added support for several Content Control features, including web categories filtering, web exclusions, SSL scan, traffic scan exclusions. The Content Control module can be enabled for existing Mac installations using a Reconfigure Client task from the GravityZone console with Content Control module selected.
    note   Note:

    This functionality relies on a macOS kernel extension. The installation of kernel extensions requires user approval on macOS High Sierra (10.13.x). The system notifies the user that a system extension from Bitdefender was blocked and to allow it from Security & Privacy preferences. Until the user approves the Bitdefender system extension, the module will not work and the Endpoint Security for Mac user interface will show a critical issue prompting the user for approval. This functionality is available for OS X El Capitan (10.11) and higher.

  • Added support for downloading updates via proxy, configurable from policy.
  • Scheduled product updates and signature updates can now be enabled/disabled independently via policy and no longer depend on the on-access scanning being enabled.
  • Signature updates are now downloaded from the Bitdefender online servers via the patches system, for an optimized traffic during updates.
  • New Self Protect module protects Bitdefender files and running processes against attempts to disable or tamper with protection. The module can be enabled for existing Mac installations using a Reconfigure Client task from the GravityZone console (Self Protect is not available as an option, it gets installed automatically regardless of the task settings).

  • New and enhanced command line support tool, collecting additional information required for troubleshooting.
  • Added support for tracking the macOS endpoints uptime to support usage reporting for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in GravityZone Cloud.

Resolved Issues

  • Malware detection events were not displaying the logged-in user name for domain users under certain conditions. This issue is now fixed.

Known Issues

  • Downloading large files from some websites via HTTPS might not work when Content Control is enabled. As a temporary workaround for such issues, you can add a Traffic Scan exclusion for that website.
  • When activating Content Control with SSL Scan, users must first restart Firefox to be able to access HTTPS websites.
