Issue/Introduction

Symantec provided Intelligent Updater files, which are used to update definitions for Symantec Protection Engine and other Symantec products, produce a malformed container error when scanned by Symantec Protection Engine.

Cause

Symantec Protection Engine currently flags files split with the UNIX split command as malformed. Intelligent Updater files are created with the UNIX split command and therefore cause a malformed verdict in Symantec Protection Engine.

Resolution

An enhancement to handle this issue is implemented on version 7.0.3.
