"Wanna" ransomware outbreak. Please see this Sophos article sophos.com/kb/126733 for advice on how to protect your organization. Immediate action recommended.
At the end of the installation of standalone Sophos endpoint security software the following error is seen:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program: ...<extraction path>...\Setup.exe This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
First seen in Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 9.7
This is a known issue. The error is thrown if Sophos AutoUpdate has started an update when clicking "Finish" in the installer.
The appearance of the error does not affect the functioning of Sophos endpoint security software and can safely be ignored.
We are investigating the issue and hope to resolve the cause of the error.
