DO NOT INSTALL 9.703-2!!!
My lab system was Up2Dated to 9.703-2 Thursday evening at 10PM CDT (UTC -0500) and all connection with the outside world immediately stopped. My local connection would work normally a few minutes at a time and then everything would lock up for a few minutes. I could not identify the problem with top, but did see a lot of zombie confd processes. I lost the entire day of Friday because my wife has a big project due next week and was working via Microsoft Teams all day with her colleagues.
I will suggest to Sophos that the file be removed from the ftp site. Grumble.

Looks like its been pulled from the SG230 and Sg310's, one of my SG210s did keep t his installed so might have missed the pull window....seems to be OK though.
Sophos has pulled this update, due to critical issues, do not install for now:

and the moral of the story?
Do not install any update until someone else has a critical issue, then Sophos will investigate further, pull the update and get the patch properly programmed, then release it again.
and to be really cynical, really fix the problem six months later!

What about the brave/unlucky/dumb people who have been installing that 9.703 update manually? Do they receive that particular pattern update as well?
