02/08/2019 CentralANTIVIRUS maintenance tasks
As part of the infrastructure improvement management and maintenance tasks, on August 20th, 2019, the following tasks will be carried out in the centralANTIVIRUS administration console:

• Unassigned directives removal.
• Unassigned tasks removal.

All those policies and client tasks stored in the "policy catalog" and "client tasks catalog" that are no longer assigned to any system or group type object, will be removed.

The target of this task, which will be carried out periodically, is to simplify the management and administration of the console to ensure the best service.

Remember that you can check your policies and tasks in the "Policy catalog" and "Client tasks catalog" section with the details of the owner and the assignment status: the objects to be removed are the ones specified as assigment: "none".

In case you want to keep any of these directives and/or tasks, please fill in the following form to meet your request.

Thank you very much for your collaboration.
12/07/2019 McAfee Endpoint Security 10.6.1 release
The current release of the product includes these enhancements and changes:

Installation and upgrade
• Support for case sensitivity — On systems running the Microsoft Windows 10 October 2018 Update, verify that the case-sensitivity attribute is disabled for folders where you want to install the product software.
You can check and change this attribute setting in Windows. Once installed, Endpoint Security protects its product folders against enabling case sensitivity, to ensure that this attribute setting won't prevent future product updates and upgrades.
• McAfee® MVISION Endpoint uninstall — The Endpoint Security installer uninstalls McAfee MVISION Endpoint if it's present on the client system before continuing with the installation.
• Support for Microsoft Windows anti-malware service protection — Endpoint Security services now start as a Windows-protected service.

Microsoft product support
• Microsoft Windows 10 October 2018 Update
• Microsoft Windows Server 2019

McAfee® Endpoint Security Common
Client interface lockout behavior — Adds the ability to enforce an Endpoint Security Client lockout if the number of failed password attempts exceeds the configured limit. Use the Enable client interface lockout setting in the Common Options policy in McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) to configure lockout behavior.

McAfee® Endpoint Security Web Control
Microsoft Edge support — Adds Microsoft Edge as a supported browser.

Problem resolution
15/01/2019 New features in McAfee Agent 5.6.0
This release introduces new features or improves existing features:

• McAfee Agent with integrated McAfee® Data Exchange Layer (DXL) — McAfee Agent 5.6.0 bundles the McAfee Data Exchange Layer client 5.0 as a component. The Data Exchange Layer client is automatically installed on managed systems and connects to a DXL broker in your environment. DXL services run as part of McAfee Agent services.

• This release extends support to additional platforms, environments, or operating systems:

- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 15
- CentOS 7.6
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLES) 15
- Ubuntu 18.10
- openSUSE Leap 15
- Mac 10.14.1
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6

• Code consolidation and merging of management client components — McAfee Agent 5.5.2 or later replaces the Product Improvement Program (PIP) with a new, more efficient, and more secure product telemetry framework. To simplify the management experience, the new framework is integrated with McAfee Agent management extension and client. This integration eliminates the need for a separate PIP extension. McAfee Agent 5.6.0 or later installer removes any previously installed PIP extension and PIP client.

• Update to crypto library — McAfee Agent 5.6.0 now uses the OpenSSL crypto library.

• Incompatibility check — McAfee Agent 5.6.0 checks for incompatibilities with McAfee products before it is deployed on the client system using a McAfee ePO deployment task. McAfee Agent 5.6.0 can block the deployment of incompatible McAfee products on the client system based on the incompatibility specification list.

The following queries are available on the Product Deployment Incompatibility report:

- Product Deployment Incompatibility Summary within 24 hours
- Product Deployment Incompatibility Summary within 7 days

• Backward compatibility service on Windows — When McAfee Agent is installed, the macompatsvc service does not start until the McAfee products integrated with agent, using legacy method are installed on the client system.

Common enhancements

Installation improvements: adds a secondary validation check when a validation failure occurs through the Validation and Trust Protection service. The secondary check succeeds if the calling process is signed by McAfee, and all loaded modules are chained to a trusted certificate authority. This allows Endpoint Security processes to operate normally in the presence of legitimate third-party software applications that inject processes, and digitally sign the software.

Log file updates: changes the activity, error, and debug log files for all Endpoint Security modules so they are now written in English only, regardless of system locale. This behavior is not configurable.

Endpoint Security Profiler Tool support
The Endpoint Security Profiler Tool works with this release of Endpoint Security.

• Analyzes on-access scanner activity

• Gathers statistics on processes and files accessed by the on-access scanner

• Uses the Default, Low, and High scanning profiles to present data based on different configurations

• Analyzes activity from Threat Prevention and Adaptive Threat Protection modules

Using the collected data, decide if you want to exclude a file, exclude a folder, or change how scanning is applied to a process' activity by placing it into a different scan profile.

Threat Prevention enhancements
• Adds the option for disabling Endpoint Security scanners to the Quick Settings menu, accessed from the McAfee system tray icon.

• Adds support for Early Load Anti-Malware (Windows 8 and later). This feature collects the list of device drivers loaded during the system boot process, then scans them when the scanning services run.

Firewall enhancements
• The Endpoint Security Firewall: Events from McAfee GTI query is now called Endpoint Security Firewall: Events from McAfee GTI in the last 6 months. Previously, this query had no date limit; now it only queries results from the last 6 months.
