Hello all,

We've received reports that the hotfixes for Linux Security fail to install properly on centrally-managed installations. R&D is already aware of the issue, and is working hard to update the hotfix so that they will work for both standalone and centrally-managed installations.

  • The existing hotfixes still work on standalone installations.
  • This issue does not affect the Internet Gatekeeper hotfixes and PSB Linux Security hotfxes.

 

Our sincere apologies in advance for any inconveniences caused, we will update this thread again when the new hotfixes are ready.

 

 

Regards,
Tack

Hello again,

 

Just a short update; the hotfixes have been prepared, but are still undergoing testing before they're ready for release. We expect the hotfixes to be ready next week; for those who need a workaround now, you can do the following before installing the hotfix:

  1. Open fsls-9.xx-hotfix2.sh with a text editor.
  2. Search for the following line:
    $FSAV_CONFIG --auto >/dev/null 2>&1 || exiterror "Failed to re-configure"
  3. Edit the line as below:
    $FSAV_CONFIG || exiterror "Failed to re-configure"
  4. Save the changes.
  5. Proceed with the hotfix installation as documented in the readme file.

[update] Step #3 updated with the entire string, as per changes to the next hotfix.

Regards,
Tack

Hello everyone!

 

We're pleased to announce that the hotfixes have been updated, and are now ready for download (the links are available in the 1st post). The advisory and download pages have also been updated to reflect this situation. The hotfix version number remains the same; as there are no changes to the hotfix content besides modifications to the shell script.

 

Our sincerest apologies for any inconveniences caused, and we thank everyone for your patience and cooperation!
