trend micro and Citrix metaframe 1.8

Hi,

I presume you'll be putting the trend micro virus protection on the Citrix server?

I dont know anything about how well trend micro works in general, but if its kept up-to-date then I guess it should be OK.

The trend micro site says it does check for the nimda virus, though. Better still, a patch to overcome the virus is available from Microsoft...

(remove spaces from the above URL)

You should apply this and then it wont be an issue.

You should also consider virus protection for the client PCs too (running the Citrix client) as they're still vulnerable to attacks themselves despite using Citrix for most (or maybe all?) of the applications they run.

Stuff still gets run locally on the client PCs and they're still at risk.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Tim.

If you go to citix website www.citix.com and do a search on virus software. This will bring up a test that they ran with trend mico's ServerProtect 5. That should be good enough to let you know that trend micro works well with citrix.

Hi,

If you've already applied the patch and it hasn't helped then...

Are you sure its the nimda virus you've got?

If it absolutely is, then I'd be taking it up with Citrix as they must've cached the mime type handling themselves. It should be possible to clear that cache.

Cheers,
Tim.
