1. General
This document contains late-breaking information about F-Secure Server Security 10.50. We strongly
recommend that you read the entire document before installing the software.
2. Product contents
F-Secure Server Security provides protection for your Microsoft® Windows Server® and Microsoft® Small
Business Server. The solution can be licensed and deployed as F-Secure Server Security, on per-server
F-Secure Server Security replaces previous F-Secure Anti-Virus for Windows Servers.
With F-Secure Server Security license, you can install the following features:
Virus & spyware protection – protects your computer against viruses, trojans, spyware, rootkits
and other malware.
DeepGuard™ – proactive, instant protection against unknown threats. It monitors application
behavior and stops potentially harmful activities in real-time.
Web traffic scanning – detects and blocks malicious content in web traffic (HTTP protocol) to
provide additional protection against malware.
Browsing protection – protection for your terminal users against web browser exploits and rogue
web sites.
Offload scanning – allows to offload malware scanning to F-Secure Scanning and Reputation
The solution is available in the following languages: English, German, French, Japanese, Italian, Korean,
Polish, Spanish, and Swedish.
3. What’s new
New features and improvements
Offload Scanning Agent – It can be installed in order to offload malware scanning and content
reputation checking to a dedicated server running F-Secure Scanning and Reputation Server. This
allows to minimize the performance impact to virtualization infrastructure.
Host Identification changes – You can chose additional Host Identification methods. The added
Host Identification methods are identifying the host by WINS name or MAC address.
Randomization of scheduled scan tasks – It is now possible to start scheduled scan tasks with
a randomized delay interval. This allows to minimize performance impact when scheduled
scanning starts on multiple virtual machines simultaneously.
Added support for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 – You can install and use the product on
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2.
Other enhancements made in this release:
AUA content folder has been moved from %ProgramFIles% to %ProgramData% folder.
Fixed issues
This section lists important issues fixed in this release:
SVCE-301: No scanners available after fsav-1100-bin update is installed
SVCE-328: Too many errors with the full computer scan
SPT-253: Web Traffic Scanning can cause delay on network services
SVCE-413: The client is using random UID even though the MSI package was prepared to use
MAC based host identification

Restart the server after uninstalling all the components.
Note: Some files and directories may remain under the product installation directory
(%ProgramFiles(x86)%\F-Secure), programs data directory (%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\F-Secure), and
user’s temporary directories (%TEMP%) after you uninstall the product. We recommend that you remove
these directories and files manually.
6. Known issues
Installation and uninstallation cannot be located during installation on Windows Server Core edition (CTS-69882)
When installing the product on Windows Server Core platform, the Browse button in the Setup wizard is
not functioning because the common Windows dialog is missing. As the workaround, you can enter the
path to the file manually.
Entering full license key does not activate On Access Scanning and On Demand Scanning
immediately (CTS-70470)
When your evaluation version of the product expires and you enter the full license key, on-access and ondemand scanning may not be activated immediately and thus not provide full server protection. It may take
up to half an hour before the product gets fully functional. In order to speed up the license activation
process, you can restart FSGKHS service or reboot the server.
Shifting evaluation license from one product to another is not supported
You cannot register the evaluation installation of F-Secure Server Security with the full license key for F
Secure E-mail and Server Security or vice versa. If you want to purchase a license for different product,
uninstall the evaluation product first.
Virus and Spyware Protection
Scanning big folders does not disinfect found malware if scanning is interrupted (CTS-68901)
When a manual scan task that was started from the Web Console is interrupted, the admin-defined actions
may not take place for found malware or spyware items. You need to run the manual scanning again and
wait until it is completed for the actions to take place.
EFS encrypted file cannot be scanned via scheduled scanning (CTS-88303/CSEP-221)
Scheduled scan failed to scan an encrypted file with inside and returns the error "file cannot be
opened". There can be many users on server and every user can have own encrypted files. To scan those
files, scanning must run with every user credentials which is impossible. Workaround is to use manual
scanning for those files.
DeepGuard installation requires Microsoft Windows 2003 Server reboot
If the product is installed with DeepGuard protection component on Microsoft Windows 2003 Server
platforms, you need to restart the server to finalize the installation.
DeepGuard 5 does not work on Windows Server 2003 64-bit
The 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 does not include upgraded driver support routines of
Microsoft's PatchGuard, which prevents kernel modifications. This makes this specific version of Windows
incompatible with DeepGuard. If you are using the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003, we recommend
that you upgrade your operating system to benefit from our award winning DeepGuard technology.
Browsing Protection
Change in Browsing protection settings may look ineffective due to caching
Sometimes it may seem that a change in Browsing protection settings is not applied, because the browser
finds the page content from the cache. Use Ctrl-F5 to ignore the cache and reload the content.
Browsing protection search results
Browsing protection does not show safety ratings on search result pages that use HTTPS.
Web Traffic Scanning
Web Traffic Scanning does not handle encrypted traffic
The current version of NIF-based Web Traffic Scanning cannot handle the content of encrypted network
traffic, e.g. HTTPS protocol.
Web Traffic Scanning causes download speed to decrease (CTS-90775/SPT-255)
In some cases, the download speed is affected by Web Traffic Scanning resulting in slow download
Web Console
Manual Scanning does not allow to scan mapped network drives/shares (CTS-70572)
When you log in to Web Console, it does not load the full user profile, so you cannot scan a network drive
or share from the manual scanning page. Scan network drives/shares with “Virus and spyware scanning”
menu from F-Secure icon in the system tray or with the “Scan Folder for Viruses” menu from Windows
Internet Explorer 8 may show the security warning on the login page (CTS-70956)
If the session expires, the Web Console returns to the login page automatically. When this happens,
Internet Explorer 8 may show the security warning about content that may be delivered using non-secure
connection. You can ignore this warning.
Web Console might delay on refreshing the page automatically
Sometimes after you change and save a new setting (for example, Language of the user interface), there
may be a few second delay while the Web Console tries to automatically refresh the page.
