    RESOLVED ISSUES

    1. ISSUE:

    Applications that perform operations with temporary files, such as printing, generate a "file missing" error.

    RESOLUTION:
    The link driver has been updated to correctly handle file operations that use the DeleteOnClose flag.

    2. ISSUE:

    When McAfee Policy Enforcer is pushed out to a system with VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i, McAfee trusted processes might trigger Access Protection rules. A reboot is required to correct the problem.

    RESOLUTION:

    The link driver has been revised to ensure trusted policies are propagated between instances of loaded drivers.

    3. ISSUE:

    Some files remain locked indefinitely. Third-party tools indicate that McShield.exe was leaking handles, thereby locking the file.

    RESOLUTION:

    The link driver has been updated to detect and handle the oplock break-in-progress status code and ensure file locks are released.

    4. ISSUE:

    Under certain conditions, VirusScan Enterprise scanner for Lotus Notes can mistakenly deny access to the Lotus Notes internal processes, if another

    Note is being accessed by the user.
    The message "You are not authorized to perform that operation" is displayed for the user.

    RESOLUTION:

    The Lotus Notes scanner binaries have been updated to resolve the issue.

    5. ISSUE:

    For non-English platforms, a control ID is displayed in the Status field of the On-Access Messages window, rather than the localized strings.

    RESOLUTION:

    The resource binary for the On-Access Scanner service has been updated to resolve this issue.

    6. ISSUE:

    When VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i is installed to Windows Vista 32-bit platforms, the Buffer Overflow Protection feature is not available.

    RESOLUTION:

    This Patch enables Buffer Overflow Protection for Windows Vista 32-bit environments.

    7. ISSUE:

    When a scheduled On-Demand Scan task fails to authenticate to a specified location, the user receives an erroneous error asking that VirusScan Enterprise be reinstalled.

    RESOLUTION:

    The localized binaries file has been updated to handle the specific event.

    8. ISSUE:

    ePolicy Orchestrator could fail to replicate distributed repositories when VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i is installed.

    RESOLUTION:

    The Common Shell binary has been updated to allow sharing of files with other processes.

    9. ISSUE:

    Users without local administrative rights are not able to use the Help file unless it was previously downloaded by an administrator.

    RESOLUTION:

    Non-administrative users can now download and use the current Help file.

    10. ISSUE:

    Not all VirusScan Enterprise events can be filtered in ePolicy Orchestrator reporting.

    RESOLUTION:

    The extended reports NAP file has been updated to allow filtering of all VirusScan Enterprise events.

    11. ISSUE:

    In certain circumstances, when a state change occurs with Access Protection, the On-Access Scanner cannot be disabled/enabled, and some Access Protection rules fail to log messages.

    RESOLUTION:

    The McTaskManager Service and Access Protection binaries have been updated to resolve this issue.

    12. ISSUE:

    When resuming from the hibernate state, the system tray icon might be in the disabled state, reflecting the status of the On-Access Scanner. However, the scanner service is functioning normally.

    RESOLUTION:

    The system tray icon should always reflect the correct state of the On-Access Scanner when resuming from hibernation.

    If you have a valid license for VirusScan Enterprise, you should have a User ID and password to login at

    https://mysupport.mcafee.com/eservi...t.swe?SWECmd=Start&SWEHo=mysupport.mcafee.com

    to download Patch 1

    Note that Patch 1 is ONLY available to licensed user, and the download link is NOT available in the public McAfee site. No one will post the download link in a public forum. If you get VirusScan Enterprise from a volume license from a University or from a corporation license, you should contact the system administrator to get Patch 1.

    Why is it necessary to verify the authenticity of the files in the patch if it is downloaded from the official McAfee portal site? o_O

    Because I work in Law Enforcement (insert three letter acronym here) and want to see if the files I have have been altered.

    This is a simple question and in my job experience I have learned things. Two of them are, never assume anything and nothing is ever simple!

    Thanks, Glenn

    Instead of comparing the MD5 for all these files you can simply compare the MD5 for the ZIP package.

    MD5: F244F33DD19985FED3DF5D3D753500FC

    This would be true IF I had the original zip file! But I do not!

    Thanks, Glenn

    Just curious, if you didn't get the zipped file then how did you obtain those files?

    Some Gov/Military IT dept's put out there own packages and insert comments they feel are needed.
    Usually FOUO statement in a sfx archive.

    Yeah, they did it within one week of releasing Patch 1. I wish they'd update the help files too.

    Does this solve the problem with 8.5 not making a clean uninstall from XP and Server 2003? Services are left running, many files not deleted and hundreds of registry entries remain.

    Sadly it doesn't. Folders, services, registry entries have to manually cleaned.
