Trend Micro: Rollback of VSAPI Version 9.000 from ActiveUpdate

November 24th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Security, Software, Trend Micro

Some of might have noticed this, but I’m writing a post about it any way.

Trend Micro is now rolling back the VSAPI 9.000 from ActiveUpdate. Reason: “There have been reports of issues on the following products scanning certain malformed PDF files”.

The version available through ActiveUpdate is now 9.100.1001, this is essentially version 8.952.

The products affected are:
OfficeScan
ServerProtect
Worry-Free Business Security (WFBS)

Earlier, they sent out an advisory about VSAPI 9.000 and problems with Windows NT (think it was OfficeScan 7.3 and ServerProtect). The problems resulted in the Scan Engine being unable to load the pattern files.
