I have this configured on 2 machines as standalone client (no Manager) and I've noticed that it does not automatically check for updates (Live update). I have auto-check configured for daily and retry window to every 2 hrs but yet it goes days without auto-updating and eventually I have to click on Live update myself. Does anybody else have this issue?
They don't usually provide signature updates on Saturdays and Sundays ( from my experience) so check whether you were trying to get updates on these days.

No, it's not the weekends. It's always for me.

On my work provided laptop they have it managed and it always keeps updated but we don't usually actually work on the laptop directly but on a VM which client provides, that VM has unmanaged client and even that is not updated automatically. So that makes it 3 machines which are able to reproduce the same issue.

One problem I had with this antivirus was that it caused a lot of problems with cracks or even the opening of some sites and prevented them from opening.
You are not supposed to use illegal methods to activate software, its detrimental to your security and your av security software is supposed to block these kind of illegal "wares"

Theres an reason pirated/torrented/cracked software are detected by AV's, they are riskware, they may not be outright malicious, which even isnt that uncommon for such software, but they pose an risk to your system in one way or another.

When I had SEP on board, and I might go back to it again some day, it updated automatically. As I recall, I installed it and had to do a couple of soft boots, then it updated after the second. Then, at least once every day when I got online, it did an automatic update check.

I agree but some AVS do identify cracks correctly but I would not use any cracks on a work computer and without necessary measures
Anyway guys support software you like especially open source and for gaming buy only gog games or non DRM

Symantec software is a buggy mess
You can except everything to break from my experience

Agree with you. In fact, I wouldn't use cracks on any computer, my own or those of any friends. You can't be sure you're just getting the crack and nothing else with it.

if i game uses drm i will pirate it so games and for now ida are the only software i pirate.
(still in migration to ghidra from ida )
anyway any game that is in gog it will be a sin to pirate as these are drm free
btw work computer should only use open source software as long as possible

I just wanted to let you all know that they have released a new build version [they haven't updated the same link on this post] but it will get updated shortly after a couple of hours. I have just updated it without uninstalling.. just updating on top of it and reboot and voila... it works...

You will find the Full changelogs on there website:- Symantec Changelog Update

Mostly they are updated for Apache Log4j 2 library
14.3 RU3 Refresh
On December 15, 2021, Symantec released a new build (14.3 RU3 build 5427) that fixes a potential vulnerability in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. Symantec products may be susceptible to a flaw in the Apache Log4j 2 library JNDI lookup mechanism.


Note:- Don't select "web and cloud access protection" during installation since it needs the key for it to work.


If you guys want me to provide download links.. just let me know :) but I am surely they will update and provide the links without my help on comss.ru website ;)

You used to have the web protection for free a year ago or more shame that they changed it
