ACTION REQUIRED to ensure ongoing antivirus and malware protection coverage on Barracuda NextGen Firewall and CloudGen Firewall products F-Series.
 
Affected products:
 Barracuda CloudGen Firewall 7.2.2, Barracuda NextGen Firewall 7.1.4 and older versions, with the Avira Engine enabled in the Virus Scanner Settings
 
As of July 1st 2019 the regular signature updates stream for the antivirus engines underlying the above mentioned products will no longer be available.
 
For ongoing signature updates customers of these products will need to upgrade to  NextGen Firewall version 7.1.5 (scheduled for February 13th 2019) or
CloudGen Firewall version 7.2.3 (scheduled for December 12th 2018) that include an updated antivirus engine.
 
In case you cannot arrange for a maintenance window for a full software update to a newer version as described above:  
Barracuda Networks also provides a smaller hotfix that just upgrades the underlying anti-virus scanner engines.
For firmware releases 7.1.0, 7.1.2, 7.1.3 and 7.1.4: Hotfix 890 available at https://dlportal.bar....1.4-144565.tgz
For firmware releases 7.2.0, 7.2.1 and 7.2.2: Hotfix 899 available at https://dlportal.bar....2.2-144606.tgz
