Table 1. System Updates

System Update



A hotfix is a workaround or solution to a single customer-reported issue. Hotfixes are issue-specific, and are not released to all customers.


A new hotfix may include previous hotfixes until Trend Micro releases a patch.

Security patch

A security patch focuses on security issues suitable for deployment to all customers. Non-Windows patches commonly include a setup script.


A patch is a group of hotfixes and security patches that solve multiple program issues. Trend Micro makes patches available on a regular basis.

Your vendor or support provider may contact you when these items become available. Check the Trend Micro website for information on new hotfix, patch, and service pack releases:
