Hello all - I just want to share this information with you.  It worked for me, but no guarantees...

We have a couple of older P4 systems (XP SP3 32-bit) with the Intel 865PE chipset and ICH5 controller.   We couldn't boot from the SERT CD on these systems - got a boot error 5 - probably has something to do with the older chipset and WinPE.

So, here's what we did to boot from a USB memory stick

First follow the instructions in TECH131578 -

with the following exception in Step 6....

I. BACKGROUND:
We have been receiving a few scattered cases of outbreaks from a file labeled snkb00ptz.exe or snkb0ptz.exe, but it seems to be on the rise.

It's normally considered poor troubleshooting to use the file name for any type of identification of a threat, but recent examples have made this practical. Even though these files were detected as many different threat names and families (Trojan.gen, w32.IRCBot.NG, Downloader, etc), the cases all reported the same behavior and symptoms.

After some additional investigation, Symantec Security Response has broken out detection for W32.Inabot. That's short for the Insomnia IRC bot. More information is available from the makers of this threat in their manual, here: http://pastebin.com/dvpu8Zwb

For those of you familiar with W32.Changeup,...

I found an old thread titled "The Java Virtual Machine has exited with a code of -1, the service is being stopped." but it was closed and locked.  So I'm posting this new info.

Using SEP 12.1.2015.2015 on XP x32 and 7 x64 clients; SEPM server is running 2008 R2 standard x64; and logging to an external SQL 2012 server.

This morning I found that my SEP clients and server had no green dot, and that I could not launch my local Java SEPM console.  The SEPM console would error with "The application failed to launch" or "Failed to connect to server".  Checked the server services and found the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager service was stopped.  I started it, but about a minute later it would stop and the Application Event Log said "The Java Virtual Machine has exited with a code of -1, the service is being stopped" with a source of "semsrv", Event ID "4096".  Starting the service...

The increased use in the workplace of user-owned devices such as smartphones and tablets, often referred to as bring your own device (BYOD), provides businesses with significant productivity and cost benefits. However, it also presents a number of complex challenges related to security.

Due to the rise of smart media devices like smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks, it is estimated that potentially, as many as 30-35%* of endpoints connected to a company’s network could be unmanaged. These are more at risk than managed endpoints which are typically subject to software patching and endpoint security policies.

Of course unmanaged endpoints are still protected by your perimeter security, such as secure web gateways. However, these have typically evolved from caching proxies and URL filters. What you need is an additional layer of security that provides the best possible levels of protection for unmanaged endpoints.

Symantec Web Gateway (SWG) will...
