Summary

As communicated by Microsoft on August 13, 2019, all legacy Windows update signatures changed from SHA-1 and dual signed (SHA-1/SHA-2) to SHA-2 only.

Correspondingly, starting on January 1st, 2020, drivers used by the Deep Security Agents on Windows will only be signed using SHA-2 by Microsoft (and no longer dual signed using SHA1 and SHA2).

Public

Customers who are using Deep Security to protect legacy OS versions (Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 SP2) are required to have SHA-2 code signing support installed on their servers to order to successfully install or upgrade the Deep Security Agent for Windows.
