Issue/Introduction

Why after upgrading to 8.1.4 are existing HTA files marked as interesting and approved?

Environment

  • CB Protection Server: 8.1.4
  • CB Protection Agent: All Supported Versions

Resolution

8.1.4 contains a new default script rule that is enabled on upgrades or new installations; This pushes a CC3 to the devices to find all the existing HTA files and locally approve them. 

Additional Information

  • Any new HTA files that are generated or downloaded will be considered unapproved. 
  • Further information can be found in the 8.1.4 Release Notes
