    • (October 11, 2010) Lenovo  has released the latest version available for ThinkVantage Access Connections, version 5.72 for Windows XP, Vista and Win 7. 

          Detection of Lenovo ThinkVantage Technology(TVT) applications does not always follow the conventional rules that customers are accustomed to. For example, a customer would normally expect that if a version of an application is older than what is currently available, then the result of a vulnerability scan would return a result that showed that a machine is vulnerable.

     

          However, with Lenovo TVT applications the detection rules do not always conform to that logic for detection. Detection is based on the information provided by Lenovo and LANDesk content implements their rules for detection. The following is an example of RnR/CSS detection logic, "Previous versions of RnR or CSS are not allowed". Detection occurs when a Lenovo notebook does not have a version of RnR installed. However, detection will not occur if an older version RnR is installed.
