Issue Description
KB76768 Issue: A Bugcheck (C2 or 19) could occur when file paths of a certain length were matched against Access Protection rules.
Resolution: The Access Protection rule matching logic now handles path names of any length.
KB75462 Issue: User sessions not terminated after logging out on Windows Server 2008 SP1.
Resolution: An updated VirusScan Enterprise driver no longer prevents Windows Server 2008 SP1 from deleting the session when a user logs out.
  Issue: When a file could not be deleted as part of a repair option, the file was incorrectly added to a pending file rename operations list, causing some errors during the repair.
Resolution: The repair operation now checks for the existence of the file before adding it to the pending file rename operations list.
800778   Issue: Servers with multiple network adapters and Receive Side Scaling enabled experienced high memory usage or depletion.
Resolution: An updated VirusScan Enterprise driver no longer causes a backlog of uncompleted User Datagram Protocol (UDP) requests which exhausted system memory.
756805 SB10038 Issue: When the Access Protection feature is disabled (which is not a recommended configuration), the product may be vulnerable to a privilege escalation as described in SB10038.
Resolution: This hotfix ensures appropriate security permissions are enforced when the Access Protection feature is disabled.
