Beginning with App Control 8.1.4, the rules that govern agent behavior have their own Rules Installer, separate from the CB App Control Server installation. As we make improvements to the rules, we can now make new versions available without requiring a server upgrade. New Rules Installers will be posted on the Carbon Black User Exchange.
Important: You must install at least version 8.1.4 App Control Server before using the Rules Installer. The Rules Installer is not compatible with versions of the App Control Server prior to 8.1.4. Please see the “Uploading Agent Installer and Rules to the Server” chapter in the CB App Control 8.8.0 User Guide for more details.
Customers who are performing a fresh (non-upgrade) installation of the CB App Control Server will need to install the Rules Installer before deploying agents. For customers upgrading the CB App Control Server, we strongly recommend that you install the latest Rules Installer after the server upgrade.
The current version of the Rules Installer is version 1.12
The Carbon Black App Control Rules Installer 1.12 provides the following improvements and enhancements:
We Added MSEdge.exe to the list of Windows browsers.
We updated the Carbon Black EDR updater for Linux Sensor 7.1.0.
We added an anti-tamper rule that prevents unauthorized repairs of AppC agents. Note: This rule may cause a performance impact as a CC2 (Cache Consistency Check) will need to occur in order to ensure it is applied properly.
