Product release information for Endpoint Server v12.2 Beta 3 on April 29, 2021.
Following on the heels of our last major agent update, which brought the DNS Protection engine and new browser plugins, we are now releasing v12.2. This new version significantly expands and improves existing functionality, including:
Most importantly though, we fixed a security weakness relating to the Authenticate with unprotected computers using saved credentials option that could potentially allow an attacker, internal to your network, to leverage the auto-install service within these products to access other sensitive systems and data in your environment. As a result, to prevent a potential attack, Agent Installation and Agent Inquiry now have only manual options for Unprotected Computer Discovery and Installation.
There are some things to keep in mind when updating the Endpoint Server Console and Agents.
- It is recommended to create a backup of the VIPRE database prior to updating. Refer to Related Articles for details on how to accomplish this.
- Database migration can take some time depending on the size of the DB. Canceling the wizard can result in data loss.
- If updating the Endpoint Server console from any version lower than v10.0, you will need to plan for a possible reboot. Updating the VIPRE Endpoint Security console to the newest version will require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 to be installed. If .NET Framework 4.6 is not already on your system, the installer may reboot the server to finalize the installation.
