NetIQ Vulnerability Manager Agent for Windows 5.0
NetIQ Vulnerability Manager Agent for Windows 5.5
The Microsoft Patch Level Query report is returning incorrect results.
The Microsoft Patch Level Query is reporting missing patches that are already applied.
The Patch Level Checker Report is reporting false information.
There is currently an issue with the Microsoft Patch Level Query report that causes the report to return incorrect information about missing patches. The XML file that Microsoft delivers for it's patches is missing a file or registry value checker for specific patches. The Patch Level Checker report is coded to look for two entries, a registry and file value, and if either one is missing the report states the patch is not applied.
To resolve this issue, upgrade to version 5.5 of the NetIQ Vulnerability Manager Agent for Windows or apply Vigilent Security Agent for Windows 5.0.1 Hotfix 46868.
