The latest version of the Déctionnel anti-virus software (PDF) is a free update for all users and can be downloaded here.
Oracle also offered a free download for customers who purchased a version of its anti-malware software, but not for its other customers.
Oracle issued a statement today saying it would stop providing a free upgrade to customers who have downloaded the new version of Déictionnel.
« We are committed to providing our customers with a quality product, and will no longer provide free upgrades, » Oracle said in a statement.
« Oracle is working with the vendor to ensure the updated version of our anti-viruses is fully compatible with the current and future versions of our software. »
Oracle said that it had been working with a software vendor to improve the anti-Malware software and that it would provide a free, unpatched version of it.
« This update resolves an issue with the Désctionnel software and will ensure that we continue to provide a quality, unbroken anti-infection product for our customers, » Oracle’s statement said.
Oracle said customers who download the updated software should use a security software such as ESET’s Security Scanner or Kaspersky Anti-Maleware.
