Centrally managed seppuku in F-Secure?

Hello,

 

I had a strange experience this afternoon:

Installed FSCS 11.60 (standard) on  a laptop and experienced compability problems with an in-house developed network appliaction. Probably something about the firewall or NIIF, but it wasn't easy to pinpoint.

 

Thus, I thought about trying the firewall-less F-Secure version, to see if it works:

 

- Ordered FSCS 11.60 remote uninstallation task from FSPM 11.22 and verified it happened

 

- After reboot, installed FSAVWKS 11.60. It started to download signature updates from FSPM and after a while, a little pop-up box appeared in the upper left screen corner, saying F-Secure software update is in progress. Within a minute, FSAV WKS completely uninstalled itself!

 

Question: why is FSPM uninstalling FSAVWKS 11.60 from the endpoint, when the remote uninstall instruction was issued for FSAVCS 11.60? They are different products.

Hello Tamas,

 

You are right, this is not a correct behaviour. We'll fix this issue in the next version.

The workaround is to delete the host from policy domain tree after uninstallation.
