Kaspersky update slows down servers

Bookmark and Share

Security firm Kaspersky Labs, which is still red faced after having its site hacked last week, has now issued an update to it enterprise anti-virus software which caused Windows servers to almost grind to a halt.

On 23 October an incorrect database update was released for its Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition, which caused CPU overload on Windows Server operating systems.

Kaspersky released a further update to correct the problem on 25 October and has apologised for the inconvenience caused.

It is investigating why the problem was not identified before the update was released and is adding additional checks for CPU overloads to its testing procedures.

Last week Kaspersky’s website displayed a link offering fake anti-virus software for three hours.

  1. Does anyone find it ironic that Kaspersky was hacked?
