Sophos password updating
So I was away for 2 weeks and when I come back the administrator password has been changed and now when I run Sophos Enterprise Console I receive the error "Logon User failed" and unless I'm bring blind there is no obvious way of actually changing the credentials.
Apple delivered its latest batch of security updates for i OS and mac OS this week.
(Generally speaking, personally identifiable data should never be written out to log files, and passwords should never be written out anywhere at all.) But if you reformatted an existing APFS disk, mac OS followed a slightly different code path in which the command used to encrypt the reformatted volume was logged, recklessly including the password plaintext.
Anyway, the good news is that Apple seems to have fixed this bug quietly somewhere between mac OS 10.13.4 and Security Update 2018-001 – we repeated the steps laid out in our recent article about the flaw but were unable to reproduce the bug this time.
Enter the commands to update Sophos in the Batch File field on the Maintenance tab. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
Sophos is an antivirus program designed to prevent viruses from infecting your computer, as well as remove viruses that have already infected your computer.
Click "Download" next to the version of Sophos that is installed on your computer.
Note that you can download a "Zip File" or a "Self-extracting File." A self-extracting file contains the software needed to execute the file, and thus may work better for inexperienced users.
Hi Has anyone come across the problem with Sophos not updating properly?
In order to accomplish these tasks, Sophos must be able to detect the latest viruses, which means that the program must be up to date with the latest virus identity files, or IDEs.
You can configure Sophos to download the latest IDEs automatically, or download the updates manually.
Scheduled are used to configure the antivirus software to update in a timeframe where Deep Freeze will not be protecting the workstations. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
This has the advantage of being one of the less difficult methods to configure but does require that the workstations have a period of time where they will not be used and can be configured to update automatically. Select Batch File in the Task Type drop down and click Add. Name the event “Sophos Antivirus” in the Name field. Select the frequency for the updates to occur in the Day drop down and set the start and end time for the event. The options “Allow User to Cancel Event”, “Shutdown after Maintenance”, and “Disable Keyboard and Mouse” can be enabled if desired.
