ASG Up2Date 6.202 released [Middle]

This Up2Date improves the support for the upcoming Astaro Command Center V1, fixes some vulnerabilities in the anti virus scan engine ClamAV and tunes the anti spam engine to improve the detection rate. It also fixes six minor bugs form the Known Issue List (http://www.astaro.com/kb).

We added also a new button, to allow administrators to disable complex local passwords (sorry, we needed it for the Common Criteria Certification…).

The new button Force complex passwords: is under System>>User Authentication. This Up2Date includes VMware tools which are used by the new Astaro Virtual Appliance. Install this Up2Date if you use the ClamAV anti virus scanner or when you plan to monitor or manage your ASG V6 device with ACC.
