Today isn't a good day for McAfee users running Windows XP SP3

Virus protection software like Norton Antivirus and McAfee Total Protection are supposed to protect your personal machines (along with corporate machines) -- they're not supposed to wreak havoc on your system. Well, McAfee has quite a crisis on its hands today and we're sure that IT admins across the globe are probably going crazy right now.

According to the New York Times, McAfee issued a routine software update today (5958 DAT) which detected a false positive for the w32/wecorl.a virus in svchost.exe. As a result, McAfee deletes the file and systems running Windows XP SP3 began a continuous reboot into hell.

McAfee has issued the following statement regarding the serious problem according to Krebs on Security:

McAfee is aware that a number of customers have incurred a false positive error due to incorrect malware alerts on Wednesday, April 21. The problem occurs with the 5958 virus definition file (DAT) that was released on April 21 at 2.00 PM GMT+1 (6am Pacific Time).

Our initial investigation indicates that the error can result in moderate to significant performance issues on systems running Windows XP Service Pack 3.

The faulty update has been removed from McAfee download servers for corporate users, preventing any further impact on those customers. We are not aware of significant impact on consumer customers and believe we have effectively limited such occurrence.

McAfee teams are working with the highest priority to support impacted customers and plan to provide an update virus definition file shortly. McAfee apologizes for any inconvenience to our customers.

For those that need an immediate fix for the problem, please visit this McAfee webpage for detailed steps to get your machine up and running. Unfortunately for now, it appears that this fix must be applied to each and every machine individually and cannot be deployed from a central location – oops.

Unfortunately for you and the others here IT departments are deploying MacAfee and Norton in corporate environments. Some are making the decision purely on ignorance, as most IT people are (don't believe me, attend some of MS seminars), some due to contracts and a few because they have no other choice (cost, management pricks, etc.).

See, this is what change management and compliance testing are for. To make sure something like this doesn't happen to 20000 people at once. It really isn't McAfee's fault that your whole company went down. It's your IT Department's fault for not testing the patches before deploying them (Best Business Practices? What are those?)

Before switching all our offices to Google apps, we were split exchange/Groupwise.

Now I can't speak for how well the groupwise side was administered, because I only controlled our office which ran exchange. I can tell you that our users in the Novell office were desperate to get rid of both Novell on the network side, and groupwise for e-mail.

After switching to Google apps, our exchange users were mixed about liking it and not, but almost every single groupwise user was much more happy with Google Apps.

As a GroupWise admin I think I am more frustrated with it then the users even are. Just Novell in general drives me nuts. PCs take a very noticeable performance hit from the Novell client. ConsoleOne (the only way to admin GroupWise) blows goats.

I love Novell's tech support articles:
Problem--GW8 has a bug when trying to print more then 5 e-mails at once.
Solution--Print less

PS My GW server is pretty stable, just administering it sucks, and most users prefer Outlook (The connector is buggy so don't go there).

It's nothing to do with staffing. Works smarter dude.

When you rollout your AV do it to a test group (say IT staff and some "IT friendly" representatives from other departments). Next day roll out everywhere else.

Same thing with security updates etc.

Unless you've got something out there with a known exploit you can take an extra day to do it right.

This is just an *example*. You can form your policy however you want but running with no patch management policy at all is f'n retarded.

And that's the problem. It is fantastically easy to test patches and virus updates prior to deployment. ePO in general is a piece of crap, but you can't put all the blame on a piece of crap software suite if the IT department isn't following industry best practices. If an IT department is too small to implement those practices, you just point the bean counters to situations like this where the entire company was shut down for a day due to faulty software.

We always test these out. You simply push the update to the IT department's computers and let it stew for a day. After that, push it to a limited set of users (typically 10) and let it stew for a day there. The IT department doesn't use all the programs our users use. After that, push to everyone.

They should be treated just like security patches.

Test groups get daily updates and the rest of the company gets something like weekly. Also, just as with security patches if there is a known exploit or outbreak in the wild you step up the pace. Only in the case of a known major outbreak would you roll out without testing.

This is not a new problem. Other AV definitions from many companies have caused similar problems in the past.

We take our patching seriously but if McAfee is like Symantec the corporate definitions are daily and we don't have time to test everyday.

We are a telco so for most things we do change management out the a55.

The preferred method is to set up two deployment schedules (AV Servers have group management capabilities that allow you to determine who gets what update when). Have patches deployed on 20-30 computers across the network one day. That gives you 24 hours to stop the full deployment if something breaks.

The big problem is that most IT departments aren't willing to spend an extra hour or two configuring the software to work according to a plan. And that's where the company loses a million dollars because of a full day of unexpected down time.

With all that said, if you haven't moved your infrastructure to Windows 2008 and Windows 7, you're working harder than you need to (in addition to having to deal with this screwed up definition).

It is not made clear whether this was a software patch or a regular virus definition update. For patches to any program, yes IT should test them. For virus definitions, no. Those are pushed automatically by the vendor like in this case and are deployed too often (daily) to be tested every time before going out to the end users.

That will not fly in most organizations.

Sure, you could hold back anti-virus updates for a day before deploying... but no, there is almost no point in running anti-virus software if you do so. AV defintions need to be pushed out immediately. If they aren't, then they're next to useless.

And yeah, McAfee really should have some internal testing procedures. They pushed out a definition update that renders every system on which it is installed unusable. HOW could they possibly let that through quality control? The dat file was clearly not even tested on a single test system by McAfee.

Not true.

If there is a known outbreak you can do an immediate rollout. Same with security updates..if there is an exploit in the wild you move fast.

Otherwise you TEST both AV defs and security updates before you roll them out. Get two different install schedules going and apply one of them to a test group and the other to the rest of the company.

It's just common sense best practice. Why do you think there is an "approve" button on update servers?

If you disagree and think this is not a good practice then how do you explain this current mess?

I agree 100% - I'd rather take my chances with running a PC without ANY antivirus protection than use this piece of Malware disguised as Antivirus software!

I'm an IT technician at a big university and unfortunately most of the campus machines are running McAfee and even students are forced to have it installed on their own private computers that they brought from home to use while theyre studying here.

The statement was made that McAfee is no different than malware... let's see...

Malware often uses up lots of system resources and slows down your PC to the point of making it unusable - yeah, McAfee does that.
Malware sometimes prevents your Windows OS from functioning properly and even makes it impossible to log on.. yep they've got that covered too.
Malware does not prevent "competitors'" malware from wreaking havoc and spreading freely... Hmmm judging by the number of PCs that I've worked on with up-to-date McAfee definitions and still terribly infected with malware I'd say this is a yes as well.
Malware is often very hard or impossible to completely remove from a PC, sometimes preventing antivirus software from being installed after it's been introduced to a PC - McAfee likewise.
Malware names often have absurd combinations of capital and small letters... can you spell M-c-A-f...

Well.. if it quacks like a duck...

As far as I can tell, there's only one notebook out in the wild that actually has 5958 on it. However from what I've seen it doesn't become an issue until it tries to run a scan with 5958 as the DAT file. More than likely I'll be able to get a hold of that machine before the next scan.

To agree with above posters, I cannot believe this got through Q&A (maybe they don't use XP anymore).

That's a well-known that MCafee antivirus is a criminal crap, as a software vendor I know how they like to detect a virus in every innocent file. More than a half of my own software is detected as a viruses with MCAfee from time to time, and it's impossible to contact them regarding that, even if you do that - they don't respond. This company is absolutely not responsible for all things they do! they damage others businesses without any responsibility! Great!

Moreover, MCafee site Advisor is also a pure criminal crap, and it's weird Yahoo search uses it!

I hate a crappy, buggy, slow and full of false positives MCAfee antivirus , I never used it and I'm happy, but they're anyway ripping me off via their fraudulent siteadvisor.com website. Why MCAfee Site Advisor is a fraudulent service?

1) The websites are scanned for security issues about ONCE A YEAR. That's not a joke, see http://www.siteadvisor.com/webmasters/index.html#
citing:

"-- How long does this re-assessment period last?
--The re-assessment period can vary from as few as 10 calendar days to as many as 365 calendar days."

Is it good for a real security? The URLs and files on modern websites are updated very often, so scanning a website once a year is completely useless and even dangerous and malicious practice. It may damage website's owners business and ruine the reputation. Of course, MCAfee doesn't care. Why? Well, I'll explaint that later.

2) MCafee siteadvisor is based on a reputation system, where random users are posting their comments with a site rating. That's a great chance for competition to publish a black PR feedback and reduce a competing website rating. Moreover, most users posting the comments there are mcafee BOTS - not people, which are given the most powerful rating 9/9, so you cannot even dispute their posts! What a crap, a machine revolution??

3) MCAfee is interested to assign a bad rating to a website. First, more red sites - more scares, and their users can see, how MCafee software is useful to protect them - even if innocent website is blocked.
The most important part of that is MCAFEE EARNS NONEY on SiteAdvisor, although the end-user software is free. How? That's simple- if you don't want to see your site blocked by SiteAdvisor, you can PAY to mcafee to have a green rating "Tested daily by MCAfee".
That green rating DOES NOT mean a 100% safe website for end-user, for example, I personally saw that refog.com website, containing a commercial spy software, had a green "Tested by MCAfee" rating for years!! Also the sites are scanned so rarely, that MCAfee ratings actually MEAN NOTHING.
So who needs this useless website rating system? Only MCafee!

MCafee is interested to put a red rating on your website! Actually, one of my websites has a red rating , and while trying to find out why, I've found out that some files listed as a "viruses" don't even exist on my website, and the date is from Sep 2009 , more than 6 months ago!!
Also some of definitely innocent and proven downloads are listed as trojans and viruses! OK, I've contacted their support, they even replied me the next day, but NOTHING has changed, now a month after my request! I also saw that some well-known websites like www.snapfiles.com were suffering because of MCAfee blocking.
There was also a story in some blog about a website owner, who stopped to pay to MCafee for a green rating, and after some time his rating was changed to yellow for no real reason! They remind "not forget to pay them"!

A great advice - stay away from this "security" scam, the main purpose of which is to steal your money. There are enough free solutions available - like Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, AVast, Avira etc. Not all of them are great, but at least they are free. And actually the chance of being infected with something really dangerous is low, if you just learn a basic secrity rules of surfing the web!
Finally, the creators of the service are scammers themselves! See http://pcworld.about.com/od/securit1/McAfee-Anti-f...

What an absolutely stupid post and I was waiting for one just like it.

Did you post this rubbish when the Guest account on your mac erased your account? Apple isn't perfect.

P.s. Post back in five years when we're still using the same pc and apple have fazed out your ipad with an update that only works on later kit.

iPad is the most utterly useless POS ever created.
No USB(!!!) No flash, A phone OS... i can go on all day here, but i have work to do on my real computer... anyway we all know how much of a joke iPad is becoming.
