I posted yesterday about a patch for WFBS 7.0 that brought it up to 1370 level. What I found shortly after applying the patch was that in the Trend WFBS Security console it reported not as build 1370, but as build 1369. See below.
Initially I was concerned that this meant that the patches supplied were incomplete, but I contacted Trend and discussed this with the Global Product Manager Melody Liu and she explained to me that it was something funky to do with the way Trend displayed the build number when they rolled up this latest group of patches into the 1370 release. You see the most recent patch in the 1370 build was 1369 – therefore it was including that patch. Build 1370 itself was the combination of ALL the patches before it. Confused? Sure – I was and Melody agreed. As a result today, Trend have re-released the patch and the version you can download now will ensure the display shows as build 1370.
Anyway – the point is – if you have already applied the Build 1370 patch and your console shows 1369 – it’s totally fine to leave it as is. If however you want it to display as 1370 then go ahead and download the later update. No big issue either way as it’s JUST a display issue.
