Version 2

    LANDesk Security and Patch News



    ·         (August 5, 2009) LANDesk Security Suite has updated Sophos content (AV-108) to support client pattern file updates. Previously, the AV-108 vulnerability definition could only report if a client machine had exceeded the number of days since its last AV pattern file update. LANDesk is pleased to announce that clients that are detected as exceeding the number of days since the last pattern file update can now be updated through the normal LANDesk remediation process.


    Configuration note: Administrators are encouraged to configure clients to obtain the updates from the Sophos Centralized Installation Directory otherwise clients will obtain their updates from the Sophos website directly.
