This buggy update causes a false positive classification of the svchost.exe file (of Windows XP clients) by McAfee solutions. The update meant for clients that conduct automatic updates of virus definitions has been replaced with a bug-free version by McAfee. In case a detection message is received for w32/wecorl.a, McAfee recommends that remediation steps be taken as detailed in the McAfee advisory. Detailed instructions to resolve issues in affected Windows XP clients can also be found on the Windows advisory page.
