The OS Patches (Patch) module checks for the presence of operating system and application patches that strengthen system security. Patch information is stored in Patch templates.
Symantec updates Patch templates with the Symantec ESM policy installer. This ensures that updated Patch templates for supported operating systems and applications are available for policies that are delivered with Security Update releases. Installing this update adds or updates the OS Patches policy and associated template files on the Symantec ESM manager.
This policy includes detection of MS03-049, Microsoft Windows Workstation Service Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability which was disclosed today by Microsoft.
This policy is designed for Symantec ESM agents running SU16 (and later) versions of the OS Patch module. Upgrade to the latest SU before installing this policy.
ESM 5.5 & 6.0 users: Use the link below or use LiveUpdate to automatically install this policy.
