Server Security 14.00 SWUP force restart cannot be delayed (Bug)

Products affected: Server Security 14.00 Software Updater
 
Problem: Upon receiving updates that require a restart, the system will automatically initiate a restart in a specified time set in "Force restart" policy (24 hours by default, to a maximum of 7 days). A restart dialog window with countdown is shown to all logged in administrators by default. The restart dialog window can be managed in "Show security notifications to" options in Policy Manager Console > Real-time scanning.
 
The system will automatically restart when the specified time is reached and administrators will not be able to override this should they require more time before allowing the restart.
 
Workaround: To circumvent the force restart, kill the fs_restart_32.exe process in system session (preferably in all sessions to get rid of the restart dialog window).
 
ETA: We are currently working on a hotfix that is estimated to be released by May 17.
