McAfee kommer med DAT uppdateringen för VirusScan den 12:e januari, aktivera registrynyckeln som krävs för Windows patchar kring Spectre/Meltdown. Tidigare fick kunder som har Endpoint Security 10 (ENS) samma registrynyckel.

Mer information från McAfee:

Please note starting with the January 12th DAT (8772), customers who use VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.8 and receive their DAT updates through ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) will have the registry key automatically updated.

The DAT adds the check for the registry key, and sets it if it is not present. Customers who have already set a registry key should not have any issues.

Following Microsoft’s guidance, we are setting the registry key automatically as we anticipate no issues with machines running VSE 8.8.  We strongly encourage customers have mechanisms in place to ensure the Microsoft patch is compatible with their other applications and control the Microsoft patch release updates through a means other than the registry key.
