Is this going to take a week before it displays on FileConnect?

Mithun Sanghavi's picture

Hello,

This usually happens with the users carrying the Symantec Protection Suite.

In case you do not see the Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU3 version on Symantec Flexnetoperations (earlier Symantec Fileconnect), you may see the same in coming few days.

However, incase you need it very urgently, you may contact the  Symantec Licensing Department.

They can help you with a Temporary License Number.

Website: http://symantec.custhelp.com
Phone number: 1-800-721-3934
Email: license@symantec.com

Hope that helps!!

FYI: It's Friday, 6/7/13, where 12.1 RU3 has yet to show up on my FileConnect view.  Tried both my current and future serial number (renewed maintenance) and only 12.1.2 is listed.  And, yes, we are a Symantec Protection Suite customer.

Contact support. They'll give you a temp serial to use.

Also remember: if all that is needed is the SEP client, a client-only upgrade patch is available here:

Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU3 Client-only patches
http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH206977 
 

Download that .zip and extract the upgrade patch needed.  Apply that to any SEP 12.1 clients which need to be brought up to RU3 to fix a crucial issue.

With thanks and best regards,

Mick

Does this mean we can expect an update to version 11 in the immediate future as well?  I only ask because we are getting ready to migrate SEP to a new server.

Hello,

No. Not in Immediate Future.

As of now there is no Official Release Date for SEP 11.0. RU7 MP4.

However, I would suggest you to go ahead with your plans of moving SEP to a new server.

On a Kind note: I would suggest you to Migrate the SEP 11.x to SEP 12.1.

Hello.

Is it  decision that the security hole CVE-2012-4953 will remain forever in SEP 11.0 ?

Well, there is no update required my contract this year. ( I can't update to 12.1 from reason out of support.  )

Not sure what you mean, as the first link you provided says:

11/28/2012 - Updated Decomposer engine for SEP 11.0 and 12.0 SBE released via Symantec LiveUpdate.

And under Mitigations:

Mitigations

SEP 11.0 or 12.0 SBE clients: Download updated Decomposer engine via Symantec LiveUpdate

Mitigations also points to these two KB articles:
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag... and
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag... - which says in part (bolding mine):

Mitigation

There are several possible ways to remove the SYM12-017 vulnerability in Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP):

  • Upgrade to a build that is not affected by the vulnerability.

  • Download the updated Decomposer through LiveUpdate (applies to SEP 11.x and 12.0.x clients)

If you have made this update, I think the documentation makes it clear your systems are covered. smiley

Hi,

Is it ok if we can upgrade from 12.1 RU2 to 12.1 RU 3?

Thanks & Regards,

I got the temp serial and downloaded. The documentation included in disk 1 seems to be for RU2. Versions.txt shows 12.1.3001.165

sandra.g's picture

This is expected. The documentation--and by that I mean the Installation and Administration Guide, Getting Started Guide, and Client Guide--is not updated for every new release. For anything that has been changed, corrected or added, you can find those updates within the Release Notes.

Not sure if this is the place to post this.  Has anyone had a problem with Security Risk exclusions?  I'm trying to add the pagefile exclusion for Terminal Services and it says that it is not a valid file.

_Brian's picture

You probably should create a separate post for this so it gets maximum visiblity.

I assume you're trying to add pagefile.sys?

What version of SEP is this for?

I'm on RU2 and did not have a problem adding. Just don't forget to select a scan to exclude this from first otherwise it will complain about not selecting a scan type. Other than that, it works for me.

Hi Scott,

It looks like you're in the right forum if you need help with Symantec Endpoint Protection, but I would recommend opening a new forum thread to that you get the proper attention directed to your issue (near the top of this page, look for Create Content > Forum Discussion). This article (below) might be of use, as far as suggestions as to what information you should provide for maximum assistance:
