It is a pretty rare situation for Enterprise Vault to be involved in a security advisory, but, I spotted this one on the RSS feed the other day. It relates to an unquoted search path and affects Enterprise Vault File System Archiving (FSA).

But fortunately there are fixes.

If you're running Enterprise Vault 8 or earlier, then you need to upgrade to 9.0.4 or higher. If you're coming from a version below Enterprise Vault 8 remember that you'll need to go through each version, in order to get to Enterprise Vault 9 (or higher).

If you're running a version of Enterprise Vault 9, then you need to upgrade to 9.0.4 (which should be nice and straight forward) or to Enterprise Vault 10.0.1 or later.

If you're running Enterprise Vault base release (then you're brave anyway!) and should upgrade to 10.0.1 or higher.

There are some best practices which are described in the first technote, which are something which should always be obeyed. Take a look at the two links for more information on the issue:
