Symantec Protection Engine produces a malformed Container error when scanning Symantec Intelligent Updater files.

Protection Engine for Cloud Services Scan Engine Protection Engine for NAS


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.


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.


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