If web protection or web control is turned on while an incompatible third-party LSP is running, system instability can occur. Sophos, Sophos Anti-Virus and Safe Guard are registered trademarks of Sophos Limited, Sophos Group and Utimaco Safeware AG, as applicable.Therefore, if a third-party LSP that is known to be incompatible is already installed on the computer, the Sophos LSP is not installed. All other product and company names mentioned are trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective owners.Endpoint Security and Control version 10.2 is now in its Maintenance phase.Although we still support it, and update the threat detection engine and threat data monthly, feature development has ended.
A number of people have used the program sucessfully for a number of months, but it does rely on various undocumented aspects of the SAV software and layout of the Sophos web site, any of which could change at any time, without notice.
I have written a program, for the Windows implementation of the Sophos Anti-Virus, that automates this manual process.
This program determines the installed version of SAV, checks whether there are new virus definitions (IDE files) available on the Sophos web site, downloads and installs them if appropriate.
Additional Clarification: The Intelligent Updater files are designed to update client installs for SEP or SAV only.
These files do not contain the required files needed by a SEPM or SAV Parent to additionally update any clients attached.
