symantec corporate edition ver9 on windows server 2003
Posted on 2009-04-13
i have a file server with symantec corporate edition 9.0 installed and then i have all of my office machines...about 20.
i didnt configure the server and i didnt realize there was console software on the server. well, i opened up the console today and out of the 20 computer on the network, a handful of them were highlighted with Threat Found and a red x on the PC.
well, i quickly update all the PC to the latest symantec patch, via the server, even though they were all patched up to date...and then i did a scan on the bad/infected computers. nothing...no viruses popped up.
what am i missing?
the computers are running normal, no lag on the PC, and nothing indicates that there is a virus on there. for those of us that know from prior experiences...i like to call it the calm before the storm.
so i figured that maybe the threat could have been from a virus that was on a the network a while ago...so i clicked the option to clear the threat. i thought i was out of the woods until 35 minutes later those computers popped up as threats again.
then something weird started to happen. as soon as one computer cleared up with threats, a computer that was never a threat starts to pop up as a threat.
not sure what to do now. all PCs are scanned, have the latest MS patches, etc...
