Looks like it has been a while since we last posted anything on our blog, let’s see if we can improve on that :)
I’ll start by announcing that we have just released a new Linux Security 9.00. This new release includes the same scanning technology which was introduced in Internet Gatekeeper 4 in January this year, so the same performance improvements are now accessible to Linux Security users as well.
Other than that, several bugs have been fixed and the WebUI looks a little bit different. We know that a lot of you are waiting for support for new Linux kernel versions, but unfortunately this release is supported on pretty much the same distributions as the previous release, with a few exceptions. We wanted to integrate the new scanning technology to the product first in order to keep the detection rate and performance up to date and concentrate on the new kernels next. However, as you can see in the release notes, we did add Ubuntu 10.04 and SLES 11 as supported distributions if you install the product in command-line only mode.
In case you are wondering why the version number jumped from 7 to 9 when there aren’t that many changes, it was done just to bring the number in line with our other corporate products. So don’t be scared of updating ;)
The release package can be downloaded from our Web Club.
As usual, please report any problems to F-Secure support or the email address at the bottom of this page.
