Windows 7: Symantec software hits end-of-decade snafu

Symantec software hits end-of-decade snafu

Symantec is warning that its Endpoint Protection Manager server product is erroneously marking signature updates issued this year as out of date.


The problem affects the Endpoint Protection v11.x and v12.x versions of the company's small business edition of the product.
Antivirus, antispyware, and intrusion protection updates with a date after Dec. 31, 2009, at 11:59 p.m. are considered out of date by the software, the company wrote on its blog.

Symantec has worked around the problem by issuing updates with new revision numbers but with the Dec. 31 date while a permanent fix is developed.
