Updating mcafee detection signature tabs of pagdating ng panahon
Traditional antivirus doesn't work in virtual environments, she says, because if one virtual machine performs a scan, all the other machines stop working.
"This scanning is very I/O intensive, because all the virtual machines are sharing the same I/O bus and the same memory ports," Chen says.
They're also making upgrades to keep up with the latest technology trends, such as virtualization and cloud computing.
New and constantly changing malware variants have forced antivirus vendors to respond, says Chris Christiansen, an industry analyst and program vice president for security products and services at IDC.
A smart agent embedded into the VMware API can do the scanning of all the machines, greatly reducing performance issues, Chen says.I continually (every 8-10 days) get the warning that my computer is not protected - "The detection signature file is between 8-29 days old".I follow its instructions and tell it to "Fix" and nothing happens.The feature helps block new exploits targeting zero-day flaws, he says..
The system is being tested on more than 100 machines at Temple University.
I run Mc Afee Virtual Technician and it either says it can't fix the problem because of an "error" or it says the problem has been fixed but it never downloads the updated file.
