VirusScan 5.2.00 AV Engine Update

Back on the 24th July 2007 I initially touched on the McAfee 5.2.00 AV Scan Engine update;

5.2.00 AV ENGINE UPDATE

McAfee will release the 5.2.00 AV Scan Engine for elective download on August 1, 2007. At this time, you will be able to download 5.2.00 Engine packages for manual installation. This includes Engine-only packages that can be used with ePO, Engine-only SuperDAT packages, and Command Line Scanners.

The McAfee AutoUpdate sites will be updated to the 5.2.00 Engine on September 5, 2007. If you do not wish to receive this update, please reconfigure your update procedures accordingly before September 5, 2007. The daily SuperDATs and downloadable daily ePO updates will also contain the 5.2.00 Engine from this date forward. [McAfee Document ID: 613441]

The manual install process is basically downloading 5200eng.exe and executing the file. The install creates SuperDAT.log which gives an overview of the changes;
