Remote Software Update and Virus Protection Job Aid

SIEMENS Healthineers Part: Addendum Remote software update and virus protection The Addendum replaces the Addendum “Virus Protection for AXIOM Systems” (AX0-000.623.07.01.xx) and “Remote Software Update” (AX0- 000.623.11.02.xx). Note Virus protection is not released for all systems and is depending on installed SW versions. Updating your system with virus pattern, hotfixes, and software updates In order to ensure fast provision of product enhancements and optimal protection of your Siemens system against virus attacks, your system will receive software updates and security-relevant hotfixes via Siemens Remote Service (SRS), if your system is connected. Hotfixes are update packages of files meant to close a vul- nerability in the operating system. Siemens assesses the security relevance of each new hotfix released by the operating system manufacturer for each of our systems. Siemens comprehensively tests and approves the hotfix before pushing it via the SRS infrastructure onto your system. When the system gets started, it au- tomatically checks whether a new software update or hotfix is pending for instal- lation. Using the virus scanner Virus protection is not enabled on all systems. If you wish to enable Siemens Virus Protection for your system, please contact your local Uptime Service Center or Si- emens sales representative. OfficeScan™ is configured to check your system for known viruses automatically , ensuring that the primary functions are prevented from being slowed down. As long as the virus scanner does not detect a virus, the tool will run entirely in the background, without disturbing your clinical work at any time. If a virus is detected, you will receive a pop-up message with information on how to proceed. See section "Dealing with virus infection" for more details.

Siemens will transfer these updates onto your system via the Si- emens Remote Service infrastructure. During the next start of the system, it is automatically checked if a new software package is available for installation. Virus pattern, hotfix, or software update available One of the below windows Software-Distribution or Software Distribution / In- stallation will be displayed depending on the software version. With server-based systems of the new generation, the IT Admin will be notified of the remote software update by email.

Siemens advises you to carry out hotfix and software update installations imme- diately. If you have to postpone an installation, make sure that you catch up on it as soon as possible. Otherwise, your system is on a lower security level and more vulnerable to outside attacks. Finishing the installation Successful installation Updates which do not require a reboot: If the installation of the update has been completed successfully, you will receive a corresponding message.  Click OK to finish the installation procedure and close the dialog window. Updates which require a reboot: With some newer software versions, the system will automatically reboot after up- date installation without display of a message; therefore no confirmation is nec- essary anymore.
