Today - May 8 2012 Dusan Vitek sent out a Channel Alert indicating the following.

The Sophos Anti-Virus scanning engine included in Kerio Connect (7.1.X) and Kerio Control (7.0.X and 7.1.X) has been replaced with a newer version and Sophos has ceased delivering virus definition updates to those versions. The engine will continue to run, but virus definitions will no longer be updated. To ensure your customers continue to receive the latest security updates they must download and install the latest version of Kerio Connect (7.4) or Kerio Control (7.3) to avoid any disruption of the Sophos security service.

All my sites are running Kerio Connect 7.3.x. It is unclear from the information in his alert as to whether I am required to go to 7.4 (still too many issues being reported so I am not running there yet) or can I stay with the 7.3.3 and continue to get the appropriate Sophos updates.

Similarly it is unclear if the Kerio Connect in versions past 7.1 (I don't use that product but sell renewals) needs to go to 7.3 or if there was a 7.2 would that be sufficient?

Well, sheesh: it's Sophos, not Kerio..

But, yes, that Ping is confusing and contradictory. But it's simpe to find out what the skinny is: tell it to update. If it can, then you don't need to upgrade, right?

Kerio Connect versions 7.2.X, 7.3.X and 7.4.X will work fine. The only incompatible Kerio Connect version is 7.1.X.

We ran into that same issue early this year. They have a work around to get Sophos to work with 7.1.x and I found it work... somewhat. ed-sophos-does-not-update-antivirus-database-786.html

I had to keep an eye on the server and reapply this fix every so often until I could get our environment ready for the move from 7.1.x to 7.3.x
