Sophos password updating
Both these bugs were responsibly disclosed by legitimate security researchers, so there is no reason to think that any cybercriminals had access to working exploits before the patches came out.
One software fix that we didn’t see mentioned in Apple’s official security advisory emails is an apparent patch for the APFS password bug that we wrote about recently.
I had trouble doing this so I had to log off and log on and quickly stop the service.
Hi Has anyone come across the problem with Sophos not updating properly?
So I was away for 2 weeks and when I come back the administrator password has been changed and now when I run Sophos Enterprise Console I receive the error "Logon User failed" and unless I'm bring blind there is no obvious way of actually changing the credentials.
The options “Allow User to Cancel Event”, “Shutdown after Maintenance”, and “Disable Keyboard and Mouse” can be enabled if desired.
On the workstations, when you try and update Sophos it runs through 3 stages. Stage 2 & 3 reports "Could not contact Server" I have added the local SOPHOS_USR account into the Users group, with no success.
Overview This document will detail the recommended practice for configuring a 3rd party antivirus solution to update properly when Deep Freeze is protecting a workstation.
Configuring Sophos Endpoint Security clients to update with Deep Freeze Sophos Endpoint Security supports the use of a command line function that can be used to trigger antivirus updates when the workstations enter into maintenance mode.
To configure Deep Freeze to trigger Sophos definitions to update when maintenance mode starts follow the process below. Configure your Deep Freeze install package as per your normal requirements, including passwords and other settings that may be required.
Scheduled are used to configure the antivirus software to update in a timeframe where Deep Freeze will not be protecting the workstations. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
