The Version Information for CIDS update does not match what is Displayed in the GUI
Last Updated March 04, 2013
Client IDS (CIDS) is the Intrusion Protection Component in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1. Symantec has released an update to the CIDS component. When I check under Help>Troubleshooting the version tab does not reflect the expected version.
In SEP 12.1, you may find version information for core product components under Help>Troubleshooting. The information for CIDS is shown as "IPS" in RU1 or as "Intrusion Protection Engine" in RU2. It is pulled from the driver file, which is the *sys* (IDSvix86.sys) file that is present in the IPS definitions folder.
If that file has not been updated with the new release, the version information will remain unchanged.
