LANDesk Patch News Bulletin: Google Desktop Version 5.9.1005.12335 With Remediation is Available 26-JAN-2011

Version 1

    LANDesk Security and Patch News



    • (January 26, 2011) LANDesk has created a new vulnerability definition for Google Desktop v5.9.1005.12335. Previous vulnerability definition releases for Google Desktop provided detection support only and not remediation. LANDesk now provides a vulnerability definition for Google Desktop that will support remediation.


    There are some limitations when attempting to install the Google Desktop update. The built-in Windows System Account that LANDesk Patch Manager uses to install patches is unable to install this update. In order to resolve this install issue, LANDesk will write the install command line to the RUNONCE registry key. When the user logs into the computer, the update will be applied using the currently logged in user. While this workaround will work for many, there is still a chance that the logged in user may not have adequate privileges to install the update and the install will fail.
