    Sophos and flash

    Hi Everyone

    I found yesterday that sophos had decided flash was a virus and was deleting dll and installers for flash and a load of other programs. I reported it to sophos and they admitted to releasing a bad update and they have now updated the defs on their site. I have got lancsngfl to update the county sophos servers and I would advice you to update your local libraries and update the client.

    If you are not in lancsngfl it might be worth checking that your county has updated their libraries.

    Now I only have to fix all the machines that its broke oh what fun.

    Richard

    Just checked our logs and cannot see anything untoward, so I think we're alright.

    Our Sophos hasn't reported any issues with Flash (yet).

    Might be why the flash uninstaller was picked up as a virus on the scan last night.

    Cheers.
