F-Secure SAFE and KB4056892

F-Secure SAFE and KB4056892

Using F-Secure SAFE on Windows 10 Pro (v. 1709); MS released the KB4056892 critical security update  which fixes the Intel CPU Problem. 

 

MS adviced asking the Antivirus manufacturer to ensure that there aren't any compatibility problems. 

Are there issues? Or am I safe to update?

Re: F-Secure SAFE and KB4056892

Hello, 

 

We're currently testing all product/OS configurations to ensure full compatibility with the January 3rd 2018 Windows Update. Once we have concluded our testing, we will release a channel update that creates the ALLOW REGKEY detailed in KB4056892. This update will apply automatically and will not require any user interaction. Once our product update has been released, Windows updates should continue to apply as normal. We estimate that our product update will be pushed out tonight or early tomorrow.



Best Regards

-Ben

Re: F-Secure SAFE and KB4056892

Ben - can you make this information more widely available? I looked at:

 

F-Secure Twitter - nothing

F-Secure Facebook - nothing

blog.fsecure.com - nothing

 

Thanks

F-Secure SAFE just got the update and KB4056892 started downloading after that.

As some of you noticed an update has been published for SAFE PC 17 (and onwards).  You can check  your SAFE version through the question mark and About or by following  this article

 

This update sets the registry key associated with Windows Update KB4056892. We estimate that fixes for legacy/older products will be published tomorrow.

Re: F-Secure SAFE and KB4056892

I have updated my ISP operater supplied F-secure Anti Virus product but no Windows 10 update is made available up until now. I suspect this sub-branded F-secure product isn't updated with the latest sollution to Spectre and Meltdown-compatitbility yet. Can you investigate this? The product is called "KPN Veilig", where KPN is a large ISP in The Netherlands.
