New features

On-Access Scanner (OAS) exclusion path for wildcard and environment variable support

NoteThe option to exclude subdirectories is also supported.
Valid wildcards are question mark (?) for excluding single characters, and asterisk (*) for excluding multiple characters
Wildcards can appear in front of backslashes (\) in a path. For example, C:\ABC\*\XYZ matches C:\ABC\DEF\XYZ
An exclusion containing question mark (?) applies if the number of characters matches the length of the file or folder name. For example, the exclusion W?? excludes WWW, but does not exclude WW or WWWW
The syntax is extended to include a double asterisk (**), which means zero or more of any characters including backslash (\). This allows multiple-depth exclusions. For example, C:\ABC\**\XYZ matches C:\ABC\DEF\XYZ and C:\ABC\DEF\DEF\XYZ
Environment variables can be inserted into exclusion strings in order to reference system-dependent values at runtime, such as the “Program Files” folder
Variables are indicated by enclosing the variable name in percent signs (“%”). For example, the folder name is %ProgramFiles%\MyData\
NoteVariables are resolved from the account where the mvagtsvc service is running (SYSTEM), so user-specific variables such as HOMEPATH are not typically useful since they don’t refer to the current user

Ability to import VirusScan Enterprise path exclusion policies

An ePolicy Orchestrator administrator can import existing path exclusion policies from VirusScan Enterprise
The ePolicy Orchestrator administrator must export the path exclusion policies for the On-Access Default/High-Risk/ Low-Risk Processes Policy as an XML file, then import the XML files to the MOVE Multi-Platform client policy
While importing the XML files, there is an option to clear the existing exclusions
NoteExisting duplicate entries are fixed so that data is not replicated.

Support for ePolicy Orchestrator 5.0

NoteMcAfee Agent 4.8 is also supported.
Creating a new agent identifier each time a non persistent virtual image is started results in a duplicate Agent GUID. To avoid duplicate GUIDs, the agent can be installed in VDI mode on the virtual images.
Installing the agent in VDI mode de-provisions the virtual image every time it’s shut down and enables the McAfee ePO server to save the de-provisioned agents to its database.

Known issues

For known issues in this product release, refer to KnowledgeBase article KB77353.

Resolved issues

1Issue — A blue screen occurs on some systems after the MOVE client is installed. (Reference: 837706 )

Resolution — Corrected a defect that was causing intermittent stack overflows.

2Issue — "ERROR: svc_socket.c: Failed to read ODS state" occurs in the MVServer Log. (Reference: 838600 )

Resolution — Reliance on the client MAC address for On-Demand Scan tracking resulted in an error when the client and server were in different subnets. As part of the initial heartbeat request, the client now passes a unique ID to the server that is used for On-Demand Scan tracking.

3Issue — Repeated On-Demand Scan starts are issued from the Offload Scan Server. (Reference: 835592 )

Resolution — If the entire On-Demand Scan occurred within the heartbeat interval, the scan complete event wasn't sent to the Offload Scan Server. This issue is now resolved.
